Welcome to the Graduate Writing Support Service

The Woodruff Library and Laney Graduate School invite LGS students to participate in a support service created solely with the demands of graduate school in mind.

Our service differs from the Writing Center because we read your work in advance, which allows us to provide comprehensive feedback on the entirety of your project.

Schedule a collaborative writing consultation personalized for your writing project through the Make an Appointment page.

  • All types of writing are welcome, including seminar papers, dissertation chapters, applications for grants or fellowships, articles, and conference papers.
  • We carefully read and become familiar with your work ahead of time.
  • We tailor the sessions to your individual needs. We work on everything from prose and organization to clarity of content and argumentation.
  • Sessions do not have a set duration and often last for two hours.
  • You can schedule as many sessions each semester as you like.
