Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Writing Workshops, Seminars, and Panels


These writing programs and events are targeted to address critical skills needed to succeed as professionals but that are not usually addressed through coursework and traditional academic training. All workshops are free and available to all who are interested.

Writing program fliers


The Graduate Writing Lab programs are designed for graduate students and professional school students. However, we cordially invite Yale postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff to take advantage of these programs.

What to Expect 

Throughout the academic year, the Graduate Writing Lab provides workshops, seminars, and panels of speakers discussing different aspects of academic writing. These events can help you enhance your academic writing skills, improve your grant and fellowship writing techniques, bolster your confidence in preparing presentations, posters, and publications, and provide answers to many questions related to your academic experience in the Graduate School.

We offer events on the following topics:

  • On Writing Strategies
