Do you wish you could graduate with a published journal article under your belt? Could you use some structured time to write and receive feedback from colleagues? Do you have some academic writing that needs polishing to become publishable? If so, this writing club is for you!
Offered by the Writing Center and the Michael Schwartz Library, this writing club is meant to help students and faculty improve their academic writing productivity. Each week we will send a short video and provide resources and advice related to an academic writing topic, and we'll have a synchronous Zoom meeting to review the topic. At least 20 minutes of the meeting time will be set aside for quiet writing to keep you on track! This Spring 2021 semester the weekly 5-minute videos will concern a chapter from the book Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword.
SIGN UP HERE
Meetings will occur in Zoom from 12:00 - 1:00pm on Fridays beginning January 22 and ending April 30th.
Filling out the sign-up form does not obligate you to participate or attend every meeting; it merely puts you on our reminder email list and provides access to the Zoom link each week. Please feel free to share with classmates who would like to make some progress on publishing!
Please note that this writing club will be especially useful to graduate students and faculty in the humanities or social sciences. Undergraduates who have some academic writing to develop into a published article are welcome to participate.
