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.
Starting Fall 2022, support will be available in-person and over Zoom! See the Appointment page for more details.
Basic (micro) Writing Skills
We can help you identify recurrent grammatical and phrasing issues and aid in non-native English writers' development.
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.
Writing Support Groups
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
We provide a distraction-free environment and snacks to boost your writing motivation and productivity. Stay tuned for our emails with details.
For me and most of the other writers I know, writing is not rapturous. In fact, the only way I can get anything written at all is to write really, really [terrible] first drafts.
