Peer Review–Writing Help for Humanities Students

Are you a Humanities student working on a dissertation or master’s thesis? Do you want more structure for your writing process and feedback on your writing this fall? Are you looking for a friendly small-group setting in which to share works in progress? We want you for GC Writing Services’ new writing group! We’ll meet to share writing, provide feedback, offer mutual support, exchange tips on process, and help each other meet accountability goals. Students will share work and feedback on a rotating basis. Peer critique helps students develop methods to assess and revise their own work outside of the workshop.

You are eligible if you are currently working on an article, dissertation materials (prospectuses, chapters), or a master’s thesis.
