Summer 2018 Dissertation Support

The UTA Writing Center is offering assistance to dissertation writers who have received fellowships from the Office of Graduate Studies for Summer 2018. Fellowship recipients can submit portions of their dissertation (up to 40 pages) to be reviewed by our Executive Staff of graduate writing consultants. With each submission, our writing consultants will assist with matters of clarity, organization, style, and citation of sources, along with recognizing grammar and punctuation patterns that the writer should address in the draft. In other words, consultants will not edit or proofread submissions, but they will offer writing/revision advice along with other resources in the final stages of the dissertating process. A comprehensive review with comments will be completed and returned to the student in 7-10 days. After the submission is returned, the dissertation writer can make a follow-up appointment (either face-to-face at the center or online), with the Executive Staff member in order to discuss the draft comments, establish a revision plan, and set up a submission date for the next section of the dissertation to be reviewed. Please complete our Summer Dissertation Writers Request Form to submit the project.
