We know that writing manuscripts can be challenging. The Weekly Postdoc Writing Editing and Review (PoWER) group provides support for postdocs to maintain a disciplined writing regimen. Postdocs may be writing research proposals, papers, books, grant applications and other such material. The group aims to create:

  • an environment of self and group accountability so postdocs meet deadlines with a polished product
  • a forum organized to the postdocs’ schedule and writing timelines, supporting a healthy writing routine
  • a place where postdocs write and review in a quiet and productive atmosphere
  • an opportunity where postdocs obtain feedback early in the writing process and see how others write.

Where and When?

Friday PoWER Group: 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM, BioSci III, Rm 1120

Additional PoWER Groups can be formed per Postdocs schedules.  Contact Mary Frances Ypma-Wong regarding your preferences.
