Interest Form for First-Year Writing Support Group (Fall 2020)
We are excited to share that the Writing Center is offering a First-Year Writing Support Group this fall! Led by a friendly, experienced instructor, this online, virtual group will provide an opportunity for sustained writing practice and support within a community of other undergraduate students. The focus of this group is first-year students, but we welcome any undergraduates who would like to gain the support and community that this group intends to provide.No preparation or outside work will be involved.
This group will meet on Thursdays from 5:00-6:15 p.m, beginning on October 8 and running through December 10. There will be no meeting during Thanksgiving week. While we hope that participants are able to join every session, we know that isn’t always possible, so we encourage students to come as often as they can.
***If you would like to be considered for the First-Year Writing Support Group, please complete this interest form. Forms submitted by Thursday, October 8, will receive priority consideration. Form submitted after this date will be considered on a rolling and space-available basis.***
Please let us know a bit about yourself.
Please provide your UW-Madison email address only.

Writing Group Needs
Please let us know your preferences below. As a reminder, this group will begin on Thursday, October 8, and run through Thursday, December 10. The group will not meet during Thanksgiving week.
Why would you like to join this writing group?
What kinds of writing projects will you be working on this semester (e.g., a series of course assignments, discussion forum posts, reflections, lab reports, resumes, cover letters, scholarship applications)?
Since accountability and community are the basis for successful writing groups, and since we have limited spots available, we aim to give priority to students who can commit to attending on a regular basis. Can you commit to attending every week (or almost every week)?
Yes, I can commit to attending EVERY WEEK.
Yes, I can commit to attending ALMOST EVERY WEEK.
No, I am unable to attend the majority of the sessions this semester.
If you cannot attend your group every week, will you let your group facilitator know the date(s) that you will be unavailable?
Is there anything else that you would like us to know about your hopes for this group?
