Writing Support for Graduate School-Newark Students

Writing Coaching

The RU-Newark Writing Center, in collaboration with the Graduate School-Newark, provides Writing Coaching to GS-N/School 26 students. A Writing Coach can support you by providing suggestions and feedback on areas like organization, research, sentence clarity, etc. (Please note that the coach cannot edit or proofread your work.) Writing workshops focus on specific topics while providing you with the opportunity to interact with your colleagues.

Writing coaching will begin for the spring semester on January 23, 2023 and will continue until May 5, 2023. We will work with you on numerous aspects of your writing, from time management to organization to sentence clarity! We are available to work with you via zoom or email for hour-long appointments.

To request an appointment, please email marneb@newark.rutgers.edu and include your requested appointment date and time, your name, and the graduate program in which you are enrolled. Please use the subject heading "GS-N Writing Coaching Request."
