FGS Webinar: Writing Workshop Series for Graduate Students

Facilitated by Hallie Wells and Karīna Vasiļevska-Das, these online workshops are designed to help you develop and refine a writing practice and gain concrete techniques to embolden your writing. The sessions follow a trajectory from the beginning of the writing process (developing and refining your writing practice) through to the final stages of revising and submitting. The format of the workshop is interactive and collaborative, as we allocate time for trying out specific activities as well as for discussion and sharing with other participants.

Recaps will be sent out after each session, so if you need to miss a week you’ll still be able to work on what we covered. Consistent participation is encouraged, but you are also welcome to choose the sessions that most speak to you.

Hallie Wells is a multidisciplinary writer, editor and writing coach. She holds a PhD in sociocultural and linguistic anthropology from UC Berkeley, and her academic work bridges anthropology and poetics. In her editing and coaching practice, she loves nothing more than supporting scholars in making their ideas shine. She also loves karaoke.

Karīna Vasiļevska-Das is an anthropologist who primarily studies the interplay of children’s health and citizenship practices in the former Soviet Union. She holds a PhD from the UC Berkeley/UCSF Joint Program in Medical Anthropology. She uses acting, walking, and singing to enhance her life as a writer and a mother of two children. She is committed to infusing academic writing with creativity and individuality.
