UWC Meetups

Here is a listing of UWC meetups for Spring 2020

Following the University’s decision to pivot to online, distance learning, the CAE is actively providing meetups via ZOOM for the spring and summer semesters.

The weekly Graduate Writing meetup is a great way to set writing goals, work with a team of peers that will help hold you accountable for achieving those goals and have dedicated time and space to write.

Each week we’ll discuss ways you can build professional writing habits, work with models, enter the scholarly conversation, present evidence, give and seek feedback and work with style.

Meet Ups are based on the book: Air & Light & Time & Space: How Successful Academics Write by Dr. Helen Sword
