Graduate Student Write-In A 2-day or 5-day workshop designed to help graduate students break through personal barriers and make progress towards the completion of a thesis, dissertation or manuscript. The Graduate Student Write-In teaches and encourages effective skills and strategies and provides a supportive, comfortable atmosphere where students can learn from, inspire and motivate one another.

Write-In Booster Sessions A 3.5 hour block of time set aside for those who have completed the 2-day or 5-day Write-In workshop. Students will have the opportunity to continue working on writing projects (i.e., thesis, dissertation prospectus). At the end of each session students participant in debrief to discuss their writing goals, challenges and strategies. The concept is simple: come together in a relaxed supportive environment, and write.

Writing Studio The Writing Studio at Georgia State is a place where writers gather to talk about writing. Writing Studio conferences, both in our studio and online, are open to any student or alumni of Georgia State University. At the Writing Studio, we offer space for conversation, coffee, and writers by creating a welcoming community where graduate and undergraduate students can practice the art of writing.

Georgia State University is in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Atlanta, the largest city in Georgia, offers a plethora of scholarly resources related to the South and beyond such as the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, The Carter Center, Atlanta History Center, the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum and the Museum Of Design. Researchers and historians may capitalize on the libraries and archival resources available in Atlanta and surrounding areas. Conveniently located within walking distance from Georgia State, the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African-American Culture and History is the first public library in the Southeast to offer specialized reference and archival collections dedicated to the study and research of African American culture and history and of other peoples of African descent. Atlanta is also home to the National Archives at Atlanta, the national record keeper of valuable records from federal agencies within eight Southeastern states.

Georgia State has established valuable collaborative relationships with many local and international universities. These connections afford faculty and students opportunities to work with others within and across fields. To learn more about partnerships with international institutions visit the Office of International Initiatives Partnerships page.
