To Become a Better Writer in English

 

These groups are small (2-5 graduate students) and are designed to help non-native English speakers build their English writing skills throughout the semester as they work on projects related to their degree program.

They include:

  • weekly, facilitated meetings (60-90 minutes)
  • conversations about building momentum on writing projects
  • conversations about who you are as a scholarly writer
  • conversations to help you work through your English writing challenges

Lindsey Bush (a M.A. student in TEFL/TESL) will facilitate the ELL WRITING GROUPS Spring 2019.

To EDIT an Existing Manuscript (up to 30 pages)

 

For non-native English speakers who have a manuscript they wish to edit for submission for publication, degree completion, or department requirements. 

These groups run for 4-5 weeks, depending on the needs of the participants.

Participants can expect to:

  • receive and give feedback to at least one other editing group participant
  • meet weekly (90-minutes sessions)
  • edit manuscripts for improved structure and organization 
  • edit manuscripts for clarity of sentences and meaning
