GradWRITE Graduate Writing Conference

Graduate Writing Conference 2021

The GradWRITE: Graduate Writing Conference addresses specific graduate writing concerns and is an opportunity to learn need-to-know strategies directly from some of Western’s most accomplished graduate faculty.

The conference is free and open to all Western graduate students and postdocs. We assemble professor panels to discuss the expectations of writing at a graduate level and to answer your writing related questions. 

Our September 2022 session was 'sold out'. Thank you to professors Marc-André Lachance, Andrew Nelson, Daniel Robinson, and Mac Ross for their insight in answering the question: "What is good graduate writing?" 

Student testimonials from past GradWRITE: Graduate Writing Conferences:

“The speakers were amazing, and I would highly recommend this conference to all graduate students at any level, especially if their programs have any writing requirement.”

 “English is my second language, so to me everything was amazing!!”

"Found all sessions were thoughtfully prepared and included useful insight. So I pleased I could attend. Sessions addressed important aspects (separate but ultimately connected!!) in gradwriting."

"The overall information provided was great in that it covered a wide range of topics. Presenters were great." 

"I enjoyed the general advice in the panel session and the very vivid and informative presenter in technical writing."
