Write With Me: Graduate Student Writing Hours

Write With Me: Graduate Student Writing Hours helps graduate writers build community and keep themselves accountable to their writing goals. It has been designed by Howe Writing Center graduate writing consultants with Miami graduate writers in mind.

For the month of October, we will be offering Write With Me Graduate Writing hours on

  • Tuesdays, 9-11 (in-person, coffee and donuts provided), &
  • Wednesdays, 3-5 (online, zoom link provided upon registration).

We encourage graduate writers from all levels and across all disciplines to consider joining and to sign up, if possible, for recurring sessions. Research shows that writing often and with regular support and feedback is the most productive way to meet long-term writing goals.

Telling Your Story: Crafting the Dossier Narrative as an Underrepresented Faculty Member

With Elizabeth Wardle

This 3-hour interactive workshop and writing session will invite underrepresented faculty to engage in a variety of activities around the narrative of the dossier, and the special challenges that narrative presents for faculty members who are underrepresented in their departments and programs. The workshop will provide a safe space to engage in community with others facing similar challenges, walk through a series of activities to help faculty members externalize and shape a narrative about their work, and receive confidential feedback from others who are not in an evaluative or supervisory role.
