Writing Groups

The writing group program provides a structure that encourages progress toward publication by promoting regular writing. Sign up is open to faculty and teaching staff of all appointments from IUPUI, IUPUC, and IU Fort Wayne. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to include graduate students at this time.

In accordance with social distancing measures, the spring 2021 writing groups will take place via Zoom, Hybrid, or At-Your-Pace. Please read on for more information.
