The psychology writing support center is a service for master's and doctoral students in the Psychology Department to receive one-on-one and also group support to help with their scientific writing.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic all support is currently only available remotely. We hope the Writing Center will be able to physically open in Fall of 2021. Please check back for updates.
Basic (micro) Writing Skills
We can help you identify recurrent grammatical and phrasing issues and aid in non-native English writers' development.
Writing can be very hard work, and almost all scientists struggle with writing motivation at one point or another. We have some tips and tricks that could help organize your writing schedule and boost your writing motivation and productivity.
Come for the pizza, Stay for the productivity
The first Saturday of each month the Writing Support Center hosts Graduate Student Writing Retreats! We provide a distraction-free environment and snacks to boost your writing motivation and productivity. Stay tuned for our emails with details.
Advanced (macro) Writing Skills
We can help you develop a clear and succinct writing style, improve organization and flow, and strengthen your arguments.
We provide writing groups based on students' needs. This may include writing support groups for grant mechanisms (e.g., NRSA, NSF, Ford Fellowship), discipline-specific awards (e.g., APA dissertation award), and more general writing fitness.

Success as a scientist is not simply a function of the quality of the ideas we hold in our heads, or of the data we hold in our hands, but also the language we use to describe them.
