Div 3 Writing Jams!!!

Writing Jams, otherwise known as write-on-sites, are a spaces to come write with other Div3s! If you are feeling isolated in your writing or are feeling like you need a community to keep you accountable to getting your work done, these sessions offer a group space to do so. These meetings are useful for setting work goals and engaging in the practice of writing (or whatever kind of independent reading, writing, planning, organizing, reflecting, etc. that your project entails). The collective energy of writing will hopefully inspire a focused and productive working space. Post-writing, there will be debriefing and setting next working goals, as well as time for socializing.

Join the Div 3 Academic Community Network for a writing jam. Jams are currently held on Mondays from 1:30-3:00 p.m. in the Airport Lounge (APL) and Thursdays 4-6 p.m. in the Roos Rhode House.

These events are student-organized and student-run!
