Writing Workshop Series for Graduate Students
Facilitated by Dr. Hallie Wells and Dr. Karīna Vasiļevska-Das, these workshops are designed to help you develop and refine a writing practice and gain concrete techniques to embolden your writing. In these sessions you will learn creative strategies for all stages of the writing process, from outlines to final edits. The format of the sessions is interactive and collaborative, as we allocate time for trying out specific exercises as well as for discussion and sharing with other participants.
