Writing in Community: Drop-in Writing Group Programs

The UWC offers weekly, drop-in virtual and in-person writing in community programs for writers. These are scheduled, recurring times for students to work on their writing projects in a supportive community of fellow writers. It’s a time for writers of all disciplines to come together to talk through their writing, receive support, and make progress on their projects.

Writers are encouraged to attend every week, but weekly participation is not a requirement. All writers and all types of writing across every stage of the writing process are welcome at our writing in community programs. Writers can choose to stay for the whole event or to drop by and write for however long they would like. The weekly writing times are facilitated by graduate writing consultants and support our mission to listen to and respect writers, mentor and empower writers, value multiple literacies and language diversity, and encourage self-reflection and critical thinking.

For more information or to request a calendar reminder for any of our recurring writing in community events, please contact us at uwc@iupui.edu. Be sure to include the words “writing in community” in your email subject line.  You may also be interested in this blog post that one writing in community (previous known as the write-on-site program) facilitator wrote about the program.
