Open Writing Circles

Writing Circles are a semi-formal (mostly informal) meeting time for groups of writers working on long term projects. During Autumn quarter, Writing Circles will be held Fridays, 2 - 4 pm in the Allen Research Commons (Red C). Writing Circles will start meeting on Friday, October 6.

Current participants are primarily Ph.D. students working on dissertations, though other writers are welcome! Every week, writers meet up to sit and write together. Each session begins with brief introductions, updates on work done in the past week, and goal-setting for the current writing-session. At the end of every session, writers check in about work accomplished and writing goals for the next week. Occasionally, additional resources are offered as requested by the group. The purpose of the group is to provide light structure and some companionship for work that can easily feel structureless and isolating.

OWRC supports this group by coordinating times and locations, and other resources as appropriate. Please click here to be added to the Writing Circles listserv, or drop in to Writing Circles on Fridays, 2 - 4 pm, Allen Research Commons (Red C). Writing Circles will start meeting on Friday, October 6.
