Meeting time: 4 to 5:30 p.m. CT
Format: registered (same attendees each week), plus drop-ins welcome
Mode: in person
Location: Multicultural Student Center, Red Gym
Facilitator: Yinka Arawomo

Do you have any writing projects you are working on? Do you desire a community of compassionate and supportive peer writers? Do you need the space and time required for the structure, discipline, commitment, and accountability you need to complete your writing projects? Do you want support throughout any stage of the writing process?

Join Yinka every Tuesday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Multicultural Student Center (MSC) as you work together on our writing projects with realistic goal settings, reflective practices, and tangible outcomes. Yinka, the group facilitator, will be present to answer questions and offer one-on-one support during your weekly meetings.

Wednesday Afternoon Undergraduate Writing Group @ the Writing Center

Meeting time: 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Format: registered (same attendees each week), plus drop-ins welcome
Mode: in person
Location: Helen C. White Hall, Room 6162 (Writing Center Commons)
Facilitator: Diego Alegria

In this undergraduate writing group, you will have the opportunity to work on academic writing projects of any type and at any stage with other fellow classmates. Each week we will meet in person, convening on the sixth floor of Helen C. White Hall, where we will foster a collegial, respectful, and welcoming environment. Each session is divided in three parts: goal setting, writing time, and closing thoughts. In the first part (15 min.), you will share your writing goals for the session and transcribe them in a Google form. In the second section (one hour), you will be working on your own academic writing projects, while the facilitator, Diego, will be available to chat about your work one-to-one. In the third part (15 min.), we will return to the session goals to reflect on the lessons we have learned not only regarding our individual writing practices (i.e., how we make arguments, organize a text, and arrange words in sentences), but also about the collective process of writing (i.e., how we form a diverse and inclusive community of writers).
