Graduate Writing Community, Weekly

Research shows that graduate students benefit from regular participation in a writing community. Writing communities help graduate students establish an individual, regular writing practice in a collaborative, supportive environment. Join fellow graduate students writing their theses, dissertations, and research articles for 2 hours of uninterrupted writing time. Graduate Student Writing Communities are most beneficial if you commit to participating regularly and are able to attend the weekly meetings for the duration of the term.
