Do you want to improve your academic writing and research skills?  Register for a Summer Graduate Writing Camp

ASU’s University Academic Success Programs (UASP) is offering three graduate writing camp sessions during the month of June. The camp, facilitated by UASP’s Writing Center Staff, will provide instruction and support to students to help them further develop the critical writing and research skills that are demanded at the graduate level. 

Success in Graduate Writing Camp - June 14-18

The Success in Graduate Writing camp offers an immersive online experience through which graduate students can enhance their writing and research skills. The camp will consist of multiple live and pre-recorded instructional sessions focused on topics such as: 

  •  Strategies for developing specific types of writing (e.g., literature reviews, annotated bibliographies, and research papers);
  • Critical reading techniques;

  • Methods for keeping track of research and;

  • Tips for writing research questions.

All graduate students are eligible to register. There is a $50 registration fee. Limited financial support is available thanks to the Graduate & Professional Student Association. 

Dissertation Writing Camps - June 7-11 or June 21-25

UASP is offering two Dissertation Writing Camps that will allow doctoral students dedicated time and space to write their prospectuses, dissertations, or other applied projects. Both sessions will be held online. 

The first week of camp is primarily intended for doctoral students with busy or unpredictable schedules. The session offers a freestyle, flexible schedule that can be tailored to each student's needs. 

The second session is designed for students whose schedules allow for structured, real-time participation. The week will offer more options for live interaction with writing tutors and peers and is a great opportunity for those seeking real-time goal accountability and live workshops.     

Doctoral students can register for one or both camps. There is a $50 registration fee for each camp session. Limited financial support is also available.
