Online Writing Help
Online Writing Help is our FREE email-based tutoring student accessible to any student registered at the U Sask, graduate or undergraduate. This service is best for graduate students as we have more experienced tutors working online. You will receive your tutor's comments within 24-48 hours of your submission, but you may have to wait longer during holidays, weekends, and at the end of term. If you need a quicker response, please visit us for drop-in tutoring on the first floor of the Main Library (Murray 142).
Starting a Writing Group

Starting a writing group with other graduate students is a great way to build a community of people who can give one another encouragement and feedback. Setting it up properly, though, is crucial. A detailed guide to starting your own writing group will help!
The ETD site is a joint initiative between the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the University Library to enable graduate students to submit their thesis or dissertation electronically to the college and the Library.
Like the Paper Planner above from U of Libraries, the University of Minnesota's Dissertation Calculator gives you an outline of what needs to be done based on the date you start your project and when you want it finished. Some information is specific to the University of Minnesota's graduate programs but most of the information is general enough to be useful no matter where you are doing your graduate work.
