Words of Wisdom
The best ideas come to you when you're sitting down, working. That's when most of the breakthroughs occur--simply by doing the work. If someone wanted to be a runner, you don't tell them to think about running, you tell them to run. And the same simple idea applies to writing, I hope.
Write Line is a virtual graduate student writing group conducted via Zoom. Graduate students in any area of study are welcome to apply. Write Line provides a productive virtual writing space so that participants can stay accountable to their writing goals.
Participants meet once a week for two and a half hours each session. Each group has a dedicated facilitator who checks in with the group and notes each person’s writing goals for the session. Following goal setting, everyone writes together. (We recommend leaving cameras on if possible.) Participants who have quick writing questions are able to get answers to those via the Zoom chat function. At the end of each session, the groups briefly reconvene so that members can report on their progress and make plans for their future writing sessions. (NOTE: This is not a class or workshop. It is an accountability group, designed to keep you motivated.)
Write Line for Spring 2023 offers five groups, each meeting once per week at a different day and time. Groups are limited to 15 members per group. You can select ONE GROUP from the options below. If you're one of the first 15 participants to register for the group, you'll receive an email with the Zoom link for that group before the first meeting. Write Line Spring 2023 will begin the week of January 30th and run through the semester.
Registration for Write Line will reopen on January 20th.
