Graduate Students Writing Café
Arts Bistro
Here is what you need to know about the Virtual Writing Café

The Virtual Writing Café is a place where you can write as a group in the comfort of your home.

Sign up for a Virtual Writing Café session to connect with a group of graduate students – at both the M.A. and Ph.D level – to co-work virtually. Each session is facilitated by a senior Ph.D student with experience in writing academic papers for classes; writing articles intended for journal publication; drafting, editing, and presenting thesis proposal documents at the Ph.D. level; grading for classes as a Teaching Assistant; and course preparation for undergraduate classes as a Part-Time Professor.

Register for one of the writing groups below and set the time aside in your calendar for your weekly meeting! You can sign up for just one or come to them all.
