Tuesday Afternoon Undergraduate Writing Group

Meeting time: 4 to 5:30 p.m. CT
Format: registered (same attendees each week)
Mode: online/fully virtual
Facilitator: Samitha Senanayake

Are you looking for a chance to get writing done in a supportive setting with fellow undergrads? This group will help you carve out one hour of structured time in your week for writing, and also give you a chance to talk to fellow undergraduates about writing questions, struggles, and strategies for overcoming them. 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 for 15 minute individual consults, to brainstorm ideas for a paper, answer a quick question about citation, discuss available writing center resources or any other question about writing you might have. We hope you’ll consider joining us online, and we look forward to supporting you and your writing!
