Graduate Writing Resources

Writing Resources for Graduate Students: Two options

  1. Brian Phinazee, MA candidate in English, is your peer tutor for writing across disciplines. Brian provides feedback on organization, clarity, grammar, and documentation style. It is beneficial for all writers to have a compassionate peer to help you develop and clearly explain your ideas, and that’s what Brian does.
  • To make an appointment, just call the ASC (229-333-7570) and ask for Brian Phinazee.

2. Use ThinkingStorm’s Writing Center. This 24/7, online resource uses professional tutors to offer feedback on development, organization, clarity, grammar and documentation style.  The following directions allow you to choose either Brian for a face-to-face, in-person meeting in the Odum Library, or to submit an essay draft for review to ThinkingStorm.
