The Graduate Writing Assistant aims to help graduate students in enhancing their composition and research-citation skills to not only achieve success in graduate school, but throughout their lives. Moreover, the Graduate Writing Assistant will aid students with writing their theses, dissertations, or Capstones. Graduate students can receive help and feedback either by making an appointment to meet individually, in small group settings, via Skype, or through email. Helpful writing tips and resources, as well as an appointment signup, may be found on this page and are accessible from home.

Assistance is available in a wide range of areas including how to correctly format a research paper, how to avoid plagiarism, proper citation forms, grammar, writing style, paper organization, etc. The Graduate Writing Assistant will hold small group workshops that cover topics such as how to hone time management skills, how to avoid plagiarism, and how to efficiently review literature. Services are available to all graduate students enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University-Camden.
