What: an academic writing community where you can connect with colleagues, discuss your work, and commit to a weekly schedule of focused writing in a supportive and collaborative environment.
Who Should Attend: Current writing group members are early career faculty, but this group is open to all UNL faculty and professional staff.

Whether you are a seasoned writer or just starting out, we welcome you to join!

Why join an academic writing community?
Amplifying the power of dedicated writing time: We all know the struggle to carve out critical, uninterrupted writing time. This writing group provides a specific space and designated times, making it easier to decline other invitations and prioritize your writing. Think of it as an “office away from the office,” optimized for focused work and collaboration.

A community that thrives on shared experience: The communal aspect of the writing group goes beyond mere space sharing. Hearing others write and discuss their work can be incredibly motivating and insightful.

Connect with colleagues: Build relationships with faculty and staff from across campus.

Stay motivated: Having a regular writing group can help you stay accountable and motivated to achieve your writing goals.

Contribute to a vibrant academic community: By participating, you help promote the value of academic writing and foster a culture of support and collaboration.
