I am the organizer of this group. I love getting to meet and write with other PhDs in LA. I encourage you to join and check out one of our events.

What Julia is saying about this Meetup Group

Love this group! It has helped me maintain a consistent writing schedule, and I have made friends along the way. It is great to meet others who are going through the same process, especially because writing a dissertation can be very lonely. If you are considering joining this group, I suggest coming to one of our writing events. You'll be surprised how much you can get done when there is the peer pressure of others!
