Overview of Ongoing Event Series at the Writing Studio
Dinner and a Draft is an opportunity for students to hear faculty talk about their writing and writing processes over a delicious dinner.
The Undergraduate Writing Symposium is an annual celebration of excellent writing by Vanderbilt undergraduate students.
The Writing Studio’s dissertation writers’ retreats provide dissertating graduate students with time to work individually in a quiet, collegial atmosphere. We couple ample writing time with optional, one-on-one consultations and daily workshops meant to focus writers on their argumentation, chapter structure, and daily writing goals. We hold an annual week-long retreat during the summer and mini-retreats during fall and spring breaks.
On Writing is a series of conversations with faculty and other advanced writers at Vanderbilt about their writing practices. Conversations examine writers’ eccentricities and the ways in which a given writer generates ideas, cultivates a style, and responds to various writing situations. On Writing events are free and open to the public.
