The mission of the Odegaard Writing and Research Center is to support the long-term development of writers and researchers across UW—undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff—through high-quality, conversation-based peer learning.
In so doing, we aim to support writers and researchers as they situate their work within more visible and useful inquiry processes that can then be extended to other contexts and purposes, both within and beyond the University, in order to facilitate learning throughout their lives.
Please read our policies before making an appointment.
Writing in graduate school is hard, but it doesn’t have to be. Our podcast offers a practical companion to writing at the graduate level by asking experienced students about their writing processes and practices. Maybe you’ll even find a strategy that is right for you!
Open Writing Circles
A flexible writing community for graduate writers. Designed for graduate writers working on long-term projects, Open Writing Circles provide a designated focused and communal workspace for writers from across campus. Join in as often or as little as you like — we’ll be back Tuesdays from 1:30-3:00pm starting January 9th!
