With Jennifer Ahern-Dodson, Director, Faculty Write Program, and Nicole Barnes, History Department

How can writing groups help you advance your scholarship during the academic year? Faculty who've participated in writing groups will share their own motivations, successes, and strategies. Participants will (1) learn about different types of writing groups; (2) identify which type of writing group may work best for them; (3) learn how to join existing groups or start their own. Where a Book Manuscript Workshop might fit into your writing process will also be discussed. Bring your lunch, and we'll provide drinks and dessert.
