Fall 2019 – Writing Accountability Group


Date(s) – Wednesday, October 9, 2019 – Wednesday, November 20, 2019

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Location: CUNY Graduate Center, room 3312

Are you a student working on an article, dissertation or master’s thesis? Do you want more structure for your writing process and feedback on your writing this spring? Are you looking for a friendly, small-group setting to workshop your works in progress? We want you! For our GC Writing Services’ Peer Review Writing Group! We’ll meet to share writing, provide feedback, offer mutual support, exchange tips on process, and help each other meet accountability goals. Students will share work and feedback on a rotating basis. Peer critique helps students develop methods to assess and revise their own work outside of the workshop.

You are eligible if you are currently working on an article, dissertation materials (prospectuses, chapters), or a master’s thesis.
