Writing Circles

Have you been procrastinating getting started on an essay? Are you stuck? Having trouble finding quiet writing time? Join a virtual Writing Circle!

What’s a Writing Circle?

Writing Circles are online group sessions that provide students with time to write, facilitated and inspired by a Writing Support Center peer tutor. Tutors are available to answer questions and provide brief assistance with grammar and writing issues.

How do I join a Writing Circle?

Register or log in to Penji and select “Join a workshop or writing circle,” to book your appointment.

Can I get FYE or course credit for a Writing Circle?

FYE or course credit is available for each Writing Circle hour. In order to receive credit, you must participate in the initial and concluding free-writes, and you must be working on an essay during the writing circle. You must be able to share your screen so you can show your writing during the session.
