SBSRC Faculty Writing Group

The SBSRC Writing Group meets from 2-4pm on Mondays, which is open to social and behavioral scientists interested in working on writing. It is a group of social and behavioral science faculty and researchers who, following advice in the book “How to Write a Lot,” meet regularly to set and achieve writing goals, and to share support, challenges, and tips. If you cannot make it the whole time, or if you can only make it some weeks and not others, you are still welcome. It is best if you can make it from 215-245, as that is when the group members will share their goals, achievements, and rewards.
