Writing Accountability Groups

Writing Accountability Groups

The Office of Graduate Studies is connecting graduate students to create small writing accountability groups to encourage their progress on major writing projects, such as theses, projects, and dissertations. Writing accountability groups will allow you to develop a support network and reach your writing and research goals.

Writing accountability groups meet once a week over an 8-week period. You and your group can decide what day and time works best for you, where to meet, and whether to meet online or in person.

Get Feedback from a Writing Coach: Your Writing Accountability Group will be assigned a writing coach, who will read up to three drafts of your work in progress and give you suggestions and encouragement over the 8-week writing accountability time period. (Writing coach availability may vary per session.)
