To The Top

GradsWrite is a writing support group program for graduate students, coordinated by the Graduate School.
The goal of GradsWrite is to provide a shared space to help graduate students accomplish their writing goals in a supportive setting. Groups will be peer-led by a graduate student. Groups will meet weekly for a minimum of 30 minutes and focus on helping graduate students set and meet writing goals, with an emphasis on accountability and support.

Are you interested in leading a GradsWrite Group
for Spring 2020?

The goal is to form 8-10 independent writing groups. Leaders must be in good academic standing and commit to gathering group members weekly, providing an informal and encouraging atmosphere where members feel supported in their writing goals.

INCENTIVE: GradsWrite Leaders who do not miss more than one of their weekly meetings have the potential to receive a  $250 award to be applied to their MU student account. Processed at the conclusion of the spring 2020 semester, the incentive should be helpful in reducing the cost of academic related expenses, and serves as a gesture of appreciation!

For the Spring 2020 semester, the program will run for 13 weeks (February 3 – May 8)

Timeline:

  • Leaders will be selected at the end of the fall 2019 semester
  • Students interested in the GradsWrite leader position should complete a simple online application by Friday, November 15, 2019
  • In person interviews will be held the week of December 2, 2019
  • Writing groups will be formed over the winter break
  • A training session for all GradsWrite leaders will be held the week of January 20, 2020
