Graduate Student Writing Groups

The University Writing Center organizes and facilitates writing groups for graduate students at UofL. The goal is to provide support, community, accountability, and feedback for graduate students working on research writing. Students can work on any project during the writing groups – seminar papers, journal articles, grant proposals, conference presentations, job letters, etc. Students from all disciplines and programs are welcome at the writing groups.

Our writing groups provide a regular setting in which graduate students can have a focused time and space for writing and to discuss writing issues with peers. Each meeting will begin with writing time, followed by a conversation about the progress of projects and questions and concerns that have come up about writing. Meetings will be facilitated by a member of the University Writing Center staff who will coordinate workshop time, facilitate group conversations about writing, or respond to individual questions.

For Summer 2017 the Graduate Student Writing Group will meet on Tuesdays, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the University Writing Center on the first floor of Ekstrom Library.
