Bula Vinaka Everyone,
We are just planning our SAGE events for January onwards and wanted to let you know what we have planned and get some feedback around timing and dates
Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium Planning Committee
We are looking for Indigenous graduate students to be on the planning committee for this years Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us and I will send you the details for the next meeting.
Weekend Writing Retreat
We will be hosting a weekend writing retreat in early February, please keep an eye out for the invite!
12 Week Writing Intensive
We would like to host a 12 week writing intensive. This is a chance of you to commit to meeting every fortnight for 12 weeks to make a plan for a writing goal and then share your progress with the group. The meetings will be every fortnight from 12:30-3:30, we just need a day of the week. So if this sounds like something you would be interested in please get in touch with a day(s) that works for you and we will go with the majority day.
Coffee and Catch Up
We would like to run coffee and catch up again from January. Coffee and Catch Up is a social gathering once a week in the morning, if this is something you would like to come to please let me know which day of the week works best for you (usually we run them from 9:30 onwards) and we will send out an invite once we have a day of the week.
If there is something else you would like SAGE to run please get in touch. We are hoping to get visiting Indigenous academics to also spend some time with graduate students, and we will keep you updated as those opportunities arise. But if there are other workshops or gatherings that you think would be helpful please let us know.
Here are the details of our upcoming SAGE session, as well as the details of our upcoming writing retreat!
