Words of Wisdom
Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.
The University Writing Center hosts a series of graduate writing groups in the fall and spring semesters called Write Watchers. Students meet for two hours every week for six-week sessions to write. The group offers some community for graduate students as they generate material for their theses, dissertations, and articles.
The sessions are facilitated by a UWC administrator and begin with a short writing tip.
Snacks and beverages are provided but you may bring your own food if you prefer. It is free to participate.
To qualify for attendance, you must have an active University Identification Number.
To get the most out of Write Watchers:
The writing group is particularly useful for students who are in the writing phase of their dissertation or thesis (rather than research or analysis).
Participants should bring a laptop or other writing materials.
The writing group coordinator will be available to answer short questions.
