Graduate Writers' Skill-building Group

Links to writing groups, discussion groups, and workshops on a variety of topics, all free of charge

What is the GWSG?

The Graduate Writers' Skill-building Group is a free program offering multiple opportunities for grad students working on a major project to build research- and writing-related skills in an informal atmosphere where peers can share or work independently.  

Starting with an introductory get-together with refreshments and ending with a wrap-up social in the library, participants have multiple optional opportunities each week to take part in writing groups, discussion groups, and workshops on a variety of topics.

Consider also participating in the upcoming Thesis Writers' Intensive.
