The Friday morning graduate writing group will provide a flexible setting for graduate students to write in community with their peers. This writing group will meet in a hybrid format, with virtual participants joining the meeting via Zoom and in-person participants convening in 6172 Helen C. White Hall. Attendees can choose how to participate on a weekly basis. Synchronous opening and closing sessions 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. Seth will also be available for brief one-to-one conferences during this group’s meeting time over the course of the semester.

This drop-in writing group for graduate students meets on Friday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. CT from September 29 through December 8, 2023. Please note that there is no weekly meeting on Friday, November 25, due to UW-Madison’s Thanksgiving break.
