Each week 1-2 trainees will share a piece of writing (<3 pages) with the group, who will provide constructive feedback on the work. This group is open to all graduate-level trainees. Examples of previous writing that has been shared include manuscript excerpts, abstracts, thesis/proposal documents, and more.
