  • Graduate students!  Our professional writing consultant Dr. Lindsay Dunn facilitates Write Now, a weekly graduate writing group that offers support and structure in a relaxed setting to grad students in all stages of their academic careers. Now in its fifth year, this group meets on every Wednesday from 2-4 p.m. in the Center’s spacious conference room in 419 Reed Hall to share research writing experiences and works in progress. Dr. Dunn is available to encourage and assist grad writers working on thesis or dissertation chapters, prospectuses, academic publications, conference papers, and seminar papers. This year’s format will be “hybrid” via Zoom to accommodate TCU grad students working at some distance.  Contact Dr. Dunn for more details. Read more here
