Graduate Writing Circles

Graduate Writing Circles
The Graduate College is excited to launch an in-person doctoral writing circle. The purpose of the writing circle is to provide a community, accountability, and a quiet location for students to gather with peers to work independently. We ask that you sign-up here as space is limited. We will meet weekly in West Walwood, East Campus on Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. Coffee and tea and light snacks will be provided. The first session will launch on Sept. 30 and run through Dec. 9 for the fall 2021 semester.
