New Workshop

A how-to guide to starting a writing group

Participating in a writing group can be a great way to develop academic writing practices, get into the habit of writing regularly, learn how to give constructive feedback, and be part of a collegial and supportive environment. In this interactive workshop, we explore:
• The benefits of participating in writing groups
• The various models of writing groups
• The logistics of setting up a writing group and how to address the ‘ground rules’
• Resources that support writing groups

As a follow-up to this workshop, we will offer a practical workshop on how to provide constructive and supportive feedback on writing (date to be confirmed).
