Writing Accountability Groups
A Writing Accountability Group (WAG) is a peer-facilitated, active writing group that meets once a week for 1 hour over a 10-week block:
- First 15 minutes, updates and goal setting
- 30 min of timed communal writing
- Last 15 min of reporting and wrap-up
WAGs are focused on developing a process and habit of writing (no peer review). They are limited to 4-8 members who must be willing to commit to attending at least 7 sessions. All necessary materials and tracking tool template will be provided to each group and an iTHRIV team member will provide a brief orientation during the first session.
A WAG can be in-person or virtual and is dependent on the group. All researchers at any iTHRIV partner site are eligible to join a WAG.
If you are interested in starting a WAG or if you would like to join one, please contact iTHRIV: UVATRNSEDS@varesearchhelp.atlassian.net
