This drop-in writing group for graduate students will meet virtually and in person on Friday mornings. Join once in anticipation of a deadline or make a habit of attending every week. We will share goals, think through strategies for building a sustainable writing practice, and commiserate during brief opening and closing sessions. The bulk of each session is reserved for dedicated writing time. Meetings will take place both in-person and online, so participants can choose to have the structure of dedicated writing space or the comfort of home.
