Monday Morning Graduate Writing Group

Meeting time: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. CT
Format: registered (same attendees each week)
Mode: online / fully virtual
Facilitator: Ellen Cecil-Lemkin

Get ready to start your week off “write” in this Monday morning graduate writing group! Each Monday morning, we will take 15 minutes to establish our writing goals for the day on a Google Doc. Then, we’ll meet together on Zoom to share our goals, spend the majority of the time writing, and, at the end of our time together, talk about what we accomplished and our goals for the rest of the week. During the allotted writing time, the facilitator (Ellen) will be available for brief one-to-one conferences with participants to help them set goals, brainstorm ideas, and get an outsider’s perspective on their writing.
