Join the 2022 CFE Summer Writing Group!

The CFE is looking forward to the 2022 Summer Writing Group program. Having offered the last two years in virtual format, we are hopeful for more in-person events and group work. But we are well prepared for virtual and hybrid formats if needed. We hope that connecting with colleagues in any format will both encourage writing productivity and reduce pandemic-related isolation. Overcoming challenges with a supportive peer group can provide a sense of community and push your writing projects forward.

The 2022 Orientation and Kick-Off will be held on May 6 from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM in Carroll Hall 111. In this session, participants have the opportunity meet with their group members to get to know each other. They also plan their summer, establish group agreements for their work together, and hear from past SWG participants to make the most of the program.


COVID-19 Update: We are currently planning for an in-person event with social distancing in place and masks are encouraged.

Please contact cfe@unc.edu if a remote option is needed.
