GET HELP WITH YOUR WRITING AT THE WRITING CENTER
The Writing Center is part of NYU's Expository Writing Program where one-on-one teaching and learning occur, as students work closely with EWP faculty at every stage of the writing process and on any piece of writing except for exams. Any NYU student can get help with his or her writing there, and it is an excellent resource for first and second year MA students.
All Writing Center sessions are 40-45 minutes long. Try to schedule your appointment in advance of the due date for your paper so that you will have ample time to revise after the session. You may schedule one appointment per week, up to two weeks ahead of time, using their online system. All NYU students are also eligible for walk-in sessions, even those who have had an appointment earlier in the week. All students who want additional time beyond one session per week should use walk-in sessions.
To get a walk-in session, go to the Writing Center and put your name on the waiting list. When a cancellation or no-show occurs, a session becomes available. The waiting list operates on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If you are working on a draft, bring two copies of it, one for you and one for the consultant.
If your writing concern is related to a particular assignment, bring the assignment. If you want to discuss feedback you have received from a teacher, bring a copy of the comments.
If you have notes, previous writing, a particular text, and/or research materials related to your draft, bring those items to the session.

Past MA theses are now available at the KEVO library for you to reference. Titles of recent theses may be found here, but a more exhaustive list may be found at the librarian's desk. Students may check out a thesis but must leave their ID with the librarian and return it within 2 hours.
