Thesis Writing Group
Completing writing assignments can be much easier when adhering to a regular schedule and becoming a member of a supportive writing group. Groups keep writers accountable and foster a sense of community. With this in mind, the Writing Centre and School of Graduate Studies are hosting a thesis writing group for graduate students in the Summer 2022 semester. If you are looking for some distraction-free time to write and can commit to a consistent writing schedule, then this group is for you.
With the return of in-person learning, we are offering 3 sessions a week: 1 session is online or in person, and 2 sessions are online only. Students will meet in person or online from 9 am - 11 am NT on Mondays. Students will meet online only 1 pm - 3 pm on Tuesdays and 9 am - 11 am on Thursdays. The majority of the time will be devoted to writing, followed by a short group discussion at the end of each session. All meetings will be facilitated by Sophie Wells, Writing Centre staff member.

- The writing group is intended to give students the opportunity to generate text, not perfect it.
- Students may remain on or off camera during the writing portion.
- Graduate students are encouraged to meet with their supervisors prior to the writing group to establish goals.
- All participants should measure their achievements at the start and end of each session.
Tutoring will not be offered during the sessions. The writing group is not designed to provide intensive writing assistance, or to help students improve their academic English. It is a time to come together to write independently as part of a supportive group of cross-disciplinary peers.
