Summer Writing Support at Cornell
Looking for summer writing support? Be sure to check this page each summer. It is updated as new programs for graduate writers are announced by different units at Cornell.
Questions about summer writing support may be sent to the ELSO email account.
Write Together at Home: June 2021 Graduate Writing Program
ELSO is collaborating with the Graduate Writing Service to offer a four-week summer writing program (June 1-25) that combines elements of a writing groups program and write-ins. The program has four components: weekly writing group meetings, weekly write-ins (two-hour Zoom sessions for students to write at the same time), individual consultations with writing tutors, and a program Canvas site for tracking of goals/accomplishments, discussion board conversations on writing, and sharing writing handouts/links. To learn more and register, visit the Write Together at Home program website.
Tutoring Available at Cornell Writing Centers
During fall and spring semesters, the Cornell Writing Centers are limited to undergraduates, but during the summer, they open their doors to graduate writers. During summer 2021, the CWC will be entirely staffed by graduate students.
Tutoring sessions will be available during summer session (June 21-August 3). To learn more, visit the Cornell Writing Centers website.
Tutoring Available at the Graduate Writing Service
The Graduate Writing Service at Cornell extends its services during the 6-week summer session (June 21-July 30) to support post-graduates (graduate students, professional students, post-docs, and faculty) as they refine and develop strategies for drafting and revising writing projects and teaching materials.

During the 2021 summer session, tutors are available for remote-access, synchronous online appointments.

Writing Boot Camp to Go! from the Graduate School
Want to jump start your writing this summer? Would being part of a supportive writing community help your motivation, focus, and accountability? The Graduate School is bringing Cornell's proposal/thesis/dissertation writing boot camp to you, wherever you are.
Drop in over Zoom for a few minutes during one or more times on one or more days: Monday through Saturday, June 29 - July 4, from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. (Eastern/New York time). As always, there is no fee/cost for our writing boot camp.
Sign up here if you think you will participate on one or more days, and we will send you more information plus materials. (Participation on the 4th of July is optional!)
Sign up here if you can't participate but want a copy of the printed materials with productivity tips and writing management strategies emailed to you. (You can always decide later to join us on one or more days of virtual boot camp.)
