Description: Both of our summer writing groups are Writing Accountability Groups (WAGs). These groups will meet for two hours, spending approximately 10-15 minutes at the start with each member sharing their writing progress over the past week, and their goal for the silent writing time. After a silent writing time of about 90-100 minutes, the group will again spend about 10-15 minutes to share the progress they made, and their writing goals for the next week until the group meets again. (The amount of time necessary for sharing at the beginning and end depend largely on attendance; in the summer of 2022, we found that about 1 minute per writer was plenty of time.)  

NOTE: Research shows that writing group participants achieve the best outcomes when they attend at least 70% of group meetings.
