This panel asks how writing groups can be used as spaces for graduate students to foster community and find support through and after the pandemic. Each panelist examines their experiences as a graduate student, both before and after the onset of the pandemic, and reflects on the challenges they have faced throughout. Presenters provide personal tactics they have adopted to ‘survive’ the process and reflect on what a PhD and pedagogy might look like post-pandemic.
