The Friday morning graduate writing group will meet in a hybrid format, with virtual participants joining the meeting via Zoom and in-person participants convening on the 6th floor of Helen C. White Hall. Attendees can choose how to participate on a weekly basis. Our synchronous opening and closing sessions each week will include both large- and small-group discussions of daily writing goals and topics related to the writing process. All participants will be given access to a shared goal-setting document. Sarah will also be available for brief one-to-one conferences during this group’s meeting time over the course of the semester. We can’t wait to work with you!
