Wednesday Afternoon Undergraduate Writing Group

Meeting time: 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Format: registered (same attendees each week), plus drop-ins welcome
Mode: in person
Location: Multicultural Student Center, 3rd floor/South Mezzanine, Red Gym
Facilitator: Samitha Senanayake

Are you looking for a chance to get writing done in a supportive setting with fellow undergrads? This writing group offers a weekly time and space for you to get writing done in the company of a community of fellow undergraduate students. You can choose to work on an extended project such as an undergraduate thesis, on your weekly course assignments, or any kind of writing you’d like. Our time each week will be divided as follows:

First 15 minutes: sharing goals
One hour: getting writing done
Last 15 minutes: celebrating what everyone got done that day!

The facilitator, Samitha, will be available throughout the writing time to talk with you about what you are working on and to answer any writing questions you might have. So, in the writing group you will always have a writing center instructor on hand to discuss your writing every week without having to make an appointment! We hope you’ll consider joining us, and we look forward to supporting you and your writing!
