Writing Groups That Work

This workshop is for research groups, departments, faculties, and groups of colleagues (including graduate students) who want to develop effective systems to support each other’s writing. Participants explore process-based and content-based models of writing groups, decide which system best suits their needs, and set up a plan to implement it. The focus is on writing group formats that 1. do not create yet more work for the participants and 2. ensure that the support provided is useful, especially in groups whose members have varied areas of expertise. The workshop outcome is a joint commitment to a writing group structure that will provide motivation and accountability, ultimately increasing writing productivity and satisfaction.
