Graduate and Professional Student Writing Groups


Intensive writing is a critical component of graduate education. To support this important work, the Grad Center organizes a variety of graduate student writing groups. Because of the varied nature of our graduate student's writing and study group needs, we have the following offerings:

  • Fall and Spring Breakout Groups (days during fall and spring breaks dedicated to providing space, food, and community for writing and studying)
  • Accountability Writing Groups (weekly writing groups with set time and location to provide graduate students a structure for holding themselves and their peers accountable to their writing - ideal for students who are dissertating or writing a thesis)
  • Topical Writing Groups (graduate students are matched with other graduate students whose writing topics are similar to their own)

While you can learn a lot about writing from your peers, the graduate student writing groups are not in place to provide writing tutelage. For one-on-one tutoring with a professional writing tutor, please visit the Villanova Writing Center and set up an appointment.
