Over four sessions, graduate students will explore habits, skills, and mindsets that support their well-being and productivity while working on long projects, and they will have dedicated time to write alongside peers in a supportive environment. This program is ideal for graduate students who are working on a long writing project, such as a thesis, dissertation, or publication.

Students can participate either in person, in the University Writing Studio (RBD Library 2056), or virtually, and are expected to attend all four sessions. Sessions will be held on the following dates from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.: September 4, September 18, October 2, and October 16.

Please complete the WriteFest registration form by September 2.

Writing Groups

Writing Groups

A semester-long writing group can help you maintain a writing routine and progress on your current projects. Participants will check in with their group members and a facilitator to share goals, reflect on progress, and encourage each other. You can specify whether you have already formed a writing group that you’d like to continue with the support of University Writing, or whether you would like to be matched with others across the university.
