Graduate Writing Resources

  • Do you want to learn about the graduate-level writing and rhetoric courses available, the field of rhetoric and composition, and courses that prepare you for teaching and non-teaching jobs in English? See Writing, Reading, and Rhetoric Studies.
  • Do you need help writing a research paper, or learning how to use MLA citations? See the Writing Center's Guided Tour or schedule an appointment with a Writing Consultant.
  • Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Do you just need hints, or suggestions on how to deal with difficult writing assignments? See the Writing Resources Library.
  • Got the reading and writing down, but baffled by how to use the library and conduct research? Visit the PSU Library's Research Guides & Tutorials page.
  • Are you a graduate student who is interested in presenting your paper at a conference? See the English Graduate Studies Resource Page for a list of conferences and helpful tips on how to give a professional presentation.
