Writing Resource for Graduate Students!

The Odegaard Writing and Research Center (OWRC) is launching a new asynchronous virtual resource, Working on It, aimed at helping graduate students develop and refine a writing process that works for them. Composed of five primary strategies and techniques, this self-guided resource provides adaptable instructional exercises and commentary from graduate writers from across UW on how these practices have helped them cultivate their own writing practices. Check it out now!

Open Writing Circles

As the new quarter gets underway, the OWRC is excited to be bringing back our regular facilitated writing group, Open Writing Circles. Open Writing Circles are a flexible writing group open to all graduate students across campus and will meet Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00pm and Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm from January 12th through March 10th via Zoom. Students are welcome to drop in anytime! For more information about the Open Writing Circles links to our virtual meetings, please visit the OWRC’s webpage here. For regular updates and reminders about Open Writing Circles, students can subscribe to our mailing list here.

Odegaard Writing & Research Center – Still Open!

Despite the current circumstances, we would like to inform everyone that the Odegaard Writing & Research Center is still open for the Spring 2020 Quarter! As a reminder of the services we provide for UW students, staff, and faculty:

The Odegaard Writing and Research Center (OWRC) offers free, one-to-one, 45-minute tutoring sessions for undergraduate, graduate, and professional writers in all fields at the UW. We will work with writers on any writing or research project, as well as personal projects such as applications or personal statements. Our tutors and librarians collaborate with writers at any stage of the writing and research process, from brainstorming and identifying sources to drafting and making final revisions. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please see our website: https://depts.washington.edu/owrc 

Note: We are entirely online for the Spring Quarter. This makes our services even more accessible for previous distance learners and students unable to visit our physical space. For any questions, please email us at owrc@uw.edu!
