Writing Groups

Writing Groups are an UCWbL service in which a Writing Center Tutor facilitates a review and discussion of works in progress for a group of 3 or more writers. These 90-minute meetings are scheduled on a weekly or biweekly basis, and they are designed to provide support and feedback for specific fields of writing. Each session usually combines discussion and feedback, although the focus is determined by the writers' needs, and the meeting agenda is developed collaboratively by the facilitator and writers.

Writers seek or join Writing Groups for a variety of reasons:

How Writing Groups Appointments Work

The UCWbL will provide a space and a facilitator for your group, and Writing Groups can be scheduled to meet at the Loop or Lincoln Park Campus, depending on the group.
