The Writing Center and Your Writing
The University Writing Center is interested in supporting the writing and scholarship of UofL faculty. We work with faculty through the one-on-one writing consultations to address any writing projects in which they are involved, including conference proposals and presentations, articles, book proposals, and grant proposals. We can work with interested faculty at any point in their writing process, from organization and brainstorming, to revising and polishing drafts. Our sessions last 50 minutes and faculty can sign up for up to three appointments a week, and can make appointments with the same consultant.
We will be providing more information and resources for faculty writers in the months to come. Meanwhile, you can also find information about common writing and citation questions on our website.
Faculty and Graduate Student Writing Group
The University Writing Center organizes and facilitates a writing group for graduate students and faculty at UofL. The goal is to provide support, community, accountability, and feedback for scholars working on research writing. Faculty and graduate students can work on any project during the writing groups – seminar papers, journal articles, grant proposals, conference presentations, job letters, etc. Students and faculty from all disciplines and programs are welcome at the writing groups.
Our writing groups provide a regular setting in which graduate students and faculty can have a focused time and space for writing and to discuss writing issues with peers. Each meeting will begin with writing time, followed by a conversation about the progress of projects and questions and concerns that have come up about writing. Meetings will be facilitated by a member of the University Writing Center staff who will coordinate workshop time, facilitate group conversations about writing, or respond to individual questions.
During the Spring 2018 semester, the Faculty and Graduate Student Writing Group will meet on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the University Writing Center on the first floor of Ekstrom Library.
