You’re invited to apply to the UF Graduate School’s Office of Graduate Professional Development Fall 2020 Writing Program.
The Office of Graduate Professional Development (OGPD) Writing Program is a social support program that strives to create a peer support structure to (1) help students cope with feelings of isolation in the writing stage of their studies and (2) aid students in supporting each other in setting and reaching writing goals.
Dates: Week of September 28, 2020- Week of December 7, 2020
Participants will meet weekly for 90 minutes in discussion groups of 4-5 students on Zoom. In these discussion groups, participants will:
- Discuss weekly writing topics
- Write for an hour
- Discuss the previous weeks’ writing goals and set new writing goals for the coming week
NOTE: Personal feedback on or editing of writing samples and/or instruction on academic writing skills will not be provided to participants.
The application will open September 4th to all graduate students (master’s students and doctoral students) and participants will be accepted on a rolling basis. The application will close when the program has reached capacity.
