Writing Groups

Here at the Writing Studio, we know that tackling graduate-level writing projects can feel both exciting and overwhelming. That’s why we have designed a writing group program to help you navigate your graduate writing journey. Scroll down to learn more about our Fall 2021 offerings.

 

 

Graduate Writing Groups

Weekly Writing Groups

During the summer, the Writing Studio will offer weekly writing groups for graduate students and postdocs both online and in person on Monday afternoons 2-5 and Friday mornings 9-12. Students are welcome to attend one or both days and are encouraged to commit to attending each week. Each group meeting begins with a brief 10-minute check-in during which participants are invited to share their writing goals for the session. Participants then check in again at the end of the session to share their progress. A Writing Studio facilitator is available throughout to provide an additional sense of community and accountability. To participate, please complete a registration form, which can be found here.

Peer Review Groups

In addition to weekly graduate writing groups, the Writing Studio offers support for graduate students interested in creating feedback-oriented writing groups. Although not required, peer review groups tend to work best when they are discipline-specific. If you are interested in creating a peer review group, please contact beth.a.estes@vanderbilt.edu for more information.
