Welcome to the Graduate Writing Center!


"Better Writers, Not Just Better Writing"

-Stephen North

Mission Statement

The mission of the Teachers College Graduate Writing Center is to provide a range of services designed to support all members of the TC community as writers and graduate students.  As a school of practitioners, we believe that writing is a tool that can help students connect theory and practice. While ensuring that students have access to the norms of academic English, our staff also believes that language expectations should be fluid, and we value the notion that effective writing utilizes multiple forms of communication. As graduate students from a variety of disciplines, we work with writers to adopt multiple paths to clarity. Consultants work to help students understand writing as a process and facilitate students in navigating this process on their own.

To advance these goals, we provide the following services:

  • One-to-one writing consultations for generating ideas, probing academic papers, or providing constructive feedback*
  • Monthly workshops on a variety of academic and professional topics 
  • Periodic write-ins to provide a collaborative space fo writing
  • Writing retreats for masters and doctoral students during University breaks
  • NEW! Small, responsive mini workshops generated from consultant data and client feedback
