Writing Groups

Writing groups provide you with the time, space, and support to complete your writing projects. This spring, the UWC is hosting several writing groups.

McNair Scholars Writing Group 

Writing is a journey: It takes time, practice, and the occasional detour. Writing alongside others via a guided writing group is one way writers succeed because writing groups build community and accountability. The purpose of writing groups is to provide you with the time, space, and support to complete your writing projects. The McNair Scholars Writing Group (MSWG) provides upper-level students in the McNair Scholars program with dedicated writing time to complete their research papers. The MSWG meets for 90 minutes weekly for goal setting, independent writing time, and reflection on writing progress. 

If you are interested in attending MSWG in Spring 2022, please fill out this sign-up form. Feel free to email us at writingcenter.undergrad@ttu.edu if you have any questions.

Honor College Thesis Project Writing Group

Writing groups are a tool you can use to maintain consistent and productive writing processes. You also support your colleagues in their writing as they support you. This writing group provides Honors college students who are working on their thesis with structured, protected writing time.  This group will meet once a week for ninety minutes. The format will consist of ten to fifteen minutes of goal setting and discussion at the beginning of the session, followed by protected writing time, and culminate in a ten-minute discussion of your progress and advice for future writing sessions. 

If you are interested in participating in Spring 2022, please fill out this sign-up form. Feel free to email us at writingcenter.undergrad@ttu.edu if you have any questions.
