Getting the Most Out of Writing Groups

Getting the Most Out of Writing Groups

January 3, 2018

Writing groups are obviously a great idea—right? They give us accountability systems to keep on track, provide intellectual and moral support systems, offer collaborative opportunities, and they make our writing stronger as we benefit from regular feedback.

But writing groups don’t do these things magically. Too often they become another task on the to-do list that can feel overwhelming. At their worst they can even distract members from our biggest priority: the writing itself.

In this webinar Dr. Kate Drabinski shares tips for starting, running, and getting the most out of writing groups. Special attention is paid to goal setting and communication strategies for building the writing group you want and need.
