Writing Cohorts

Are you struggling to maintain momentum on your writing project? Give yourself a boost by joining a writing cohort. Each cohort will meet on Zoom once a week for about one hour. Sessions will begin with a brief check-in, followed by 50 minutes of focused writing time. Participants will stay on Zoom while they write in order to experience solidarity of purpose with their cohort.

Mondays @ 8 AM with Anna Carroll, Feb 12 – May 6, register here.
Fridays @ 10 AM with Debbie Philip, Feb 16 – May 10, register here.

Accountability Groups

Are you looking for a community of support to help you meet your writing goals? This semester, The Writing Center is running three accountability groups that meet one day a week for ten weeks. During each Zoom session of one hour or less, participants will share weekly goals, accomplishments, and setbacks. Throughout this process, members of the group will offer each other support, encouragement, and practical advice. 

Tuesdays @ 10 AM with Malkah Bressler, Feb 13 – May 7, register here.
Wednesdays @ 10 AM with Emily Price, Feb 14 – May 8, register here.
Thursdays @ 6:30 PM with Daniel Hengel, Feb 15 – May 9, register here.

Winter Dissertation and Thesis Writing Clinics

This winter break, we are running 2 week-long clinics for dissertation and thesis writers. Conducted remotely, each clinic will bring participants together in a community of support aimed at recalibrating one’s relationship to self-structured writing time. Participants will convene at 10 AM each morning for a brief information session, work independently during the day, then reconvene at 5 PM for a group debrief and reflection. Participants will gain increased process-awareness of the daily habits and practices that support (and undermine) writing productivity.

NOTE: Due to limited availability, students can only register for 1 clinic. 

Clinic 1, January 8—12, facilitated by Malkah Bressler; register here.

Clinic 2, January 15—19, facilitated by Daniel Hengel; register here.
