POWER Consultants

Who We Are

Click here to meet the consultants!

We are a group of graduate students and faculty members who have gone through the POWER training process. We come from different backgrounds and writing experiences, but we have one thing in common: We believe anyone can learn to write academically given the right tools and applying the tools to their own writing development (and, we believe we can continually develop/ improve our writing).



Sign-up for a free  “POWER Hour” with us. We’d love to help you in your academic writing journey - a journey we are also on.


Read our Writing 

Some of us have become so inspired to write (and believe us, many of us did not consider ourselves "writers" before we were part of POWER!), that we began our own writing projects outside of traditional academic writing (although we still do lots and lots of this primarily!). Click the link to read some of our work. You'll be in for a treat!
