Tips, Tricks, and Tools for Productive Writing: Building a Supportive Community for Feedback and Motivation

Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Virtual Event

This workshop will provide an introduction to the concept of peer review writing groups: small groups self-organized specifically as a space for workshopping drafts, staying on track with writing projects, and practicing scholarly communication with colleagues. In this workshop, you will learn about the advantages of peer review writing groups and the best practices for establishing your own group. Amy Cheung, Ph.D., a WCC Instructor and Communication Specialist, will cover different possible models and the “predictable pitfalls” that can occur in sustaining a group and running meetings. We will also introduce tools and resources you can apply to support structured and constructive ways of giving and receiving feedback on writing.
