Can't make it to the WCC's Grad Writing Cafes? Looking for a writing community in your own faculty?

Introducing #WaterlooWrites!

#WaterlooWrites offer "show up and write" spaces for graduate students facilitated and hosted by graduate students. These groups provide spaces to write with peers, discuss the challenges and successes of writing about your research, and learn new writing tips each week.

Pick up a #WaterlooWrites incentive card during any faculty or school's writing session. Each time you show up and write, you'll earn a stamp on your card. Fill up your card to receive a #WaterlooWrites coffee mug to show off your dedication and fuel future writing sessions! 

Faculty are also invited to participate.
