Writing Circles

Writing can be challenging, but sometimes talking through your ideas can help you put pen to paper. Join a writing circle and receive supportive feedback from your colleagues as you work on manuscripts for publication.

If you would like to start a writing circle, please contact Sarah Bukhari.

Writing Week

Four times a year, we devote a week to supporting our faculty in their scholarly writing. At writing week, you can:

  • attend a kickoff workshop
  • participate in a drop-in writing session
  • work with an editor to develop your manuscripts

Writing Week is held in February, May, August, and October of each year.
