Celebrate the National Day on Writing by Writing Together Online with the WCC

Join the WCC in celebrating the National Day on Writing during the week of October 20th by Writing Together Online every day, Monday through Thursday! During each session, we will raffle two prizes.

Our sessions seek to create a community of writers who connect, set realistic goals, and write together to motivate each other and make progress on their academic projects.

This program is open to graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, researchers, faculty, or staff, who are actively writing their proposals, manuscripts, theses, dissertations, chapters, or books.
