Getting the Most Out of Writing Groups

January 3, 2018 Blog

Writing groups are obviously a great idea—right? They give us accountability systems to keep on track, provide intellectual and moral support systems, 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 writing groups can even distract members from our biggest priority: the writing itself.

In this free webinar, Ideas on Fire coach Dr. Kate Drabinski will share tips for starting, running, and getting the most out of writing groups. Special attention will be paid to goal setting and communication strategies for building the writing group you want–and need.

This webinar is FREE and open to the public.

Register now to join us live on Thursday, January 4, 2018, 1–2 pm EST, or to access the video any time.
