The Graduate Writing Assistant aims to help graduate students with their theses, dissertations, and capstone projects. Assistance includes but is not limited to enhancing composition skills, brushing up on research-citation methods, developing tactics to avoid plagiarism, copy-editing for grammar, spelling, and punctuation, approaching paper organization dynamically, and providing helpful writing tips and resources.

Receive feedback, conduct collaborative brainstorming, or just get an extra set of eyes on all of your writing assignments. Services are available across academic disciplines to all graduate students enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers–Camden. The Graduate Writing Assistant will also periodically hold small group workshops that address matters such as time management, quote integration, research methods, and more.
