"Academics who write for 30 minutes a day produce, on average, more peer-reviewed publications than academics who write for big blocks of time. But the 'snacks' have to be regular — 45 minutes once a week doesn't work, but 45 minutes a day 5 days a week does wonders."--Maria Gardiner & Hugh Kearns, Nature, 2011

5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

CAPS and BGWA are coming together for Mindful Mondays! We will be meeting in the Graduate Student Center - third floor conference room. Our session will cover the following topics:

As the holidays approach, SCRWP is hosting a Dinner & Discussion on "How to Respond to Racism from Family". We'll start with two groups for people of color and white folks to discuss separately the barriers to addressing race-related issues with family and overcoming complicity, then we'll unite in one group to discuss the issues all together and debrief on conversational dynamics in multi-racial spaces.
