Poorvu Center: Graduate Writing Lab


The Graduate Writing Lab supports Yale graduate and professional school students, as well as postdoctoral scholars and scientists, as they succeed as researchers, writers, and communicators. We address skills and questions that are not usually addressed through coursework and traditional academic training.

Events & Activities

We host more than 100 workshops, seminars, and panel sessions per year featuring leading experts and trained instructors that cover a wide range of topics.

Peer-Review Groups

We sponsor approx. 10 semester-long writing-intensive peer-review groups that help create an editorial community among graduate and professional school students.


Each year we conduct more than 2,500 individual writing consultations with trained advanced-year graduate writing fellows from a variety of disciplines.
