Doctoral Writing Circles

Doctoral Writing Circles

Doctoral students writing their dissertations are invited to join during drop-in times. Gather with peers for a quiet time to write in community. This is an opportunity to gather virtually and work separately on dissertation projects. There are no obligations, just a small investment of time that offers accountability and motivation. Writing Circle times will be on selected Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. in Webex.

Join at 2 p.m. for all or part of the time as your schedule allows. Fall meeting dates:

  • Thursday, Nov. 12
  • Thursday, Nov. 19
  • Thursday, Dec. 3
  • Thursday, Dec. 10
  • Thursday, Dec. 17
