Thursday Evening Undergraduate Writing Group

Meeting time: 5:30 to 7 p.m. CT
Format: registered (same attendees each week), plus drop-ins welcome
Mode: online / fully virtual
Facilitator: Sydney Goggins

This online undergraduate Writing Group provides you with a supportive environment to get your writing done along with fellow undergrads. You can choose to work on your weekly course assignments, application essays, an undergraduate thesis, or any kind of writing you’d like. Each Thursday evening, we’ll meet together on Zoom to establish our writing goals on a shared Google Doc (15 minutes), and then spend the majority of the time writing (one hour). At the end, we will talk about what we accomplished and our goals for the rest of the week (15 minutes). During the meeting, your facilitator (Sydney) will be available to talk with you about what you are working on, help you set goals and brainstorm ideas, and answer any writing questions you might have.
