Postgrad Writing GroupHEDC Postgrad Writing Group

The HEDC postgrad writing group is going strong with students attending every Monday from 9-12. The students say that they feel motivated, supported by their peers, and enjoy the feedback they receive on their writing. We begin each session by sharing our writing goals for the week. Then we write until morning tea break when we take the opportunity to catch up with each other. We continue with more writing and then just before noon we set aside time for those who would like some feedback on their written work.

It has been a great way to kick-start the week with some focused writing and no distractions from the likes of Facebook or email.

Associate Professor Clinton Golding has included a description of our writing group in a resource he has compiled called 'Setting up a writing group'. And I have also shared our experiences at Dr Vijay Mallan's postgrad writing workshops in the hope of promoting the benefits of a writing group.
