Your Writing Life

As writers, we are big believers in the usefulness of planning, accountability, and establishing a sustainable writing practice (e.g., writing some most days rather than hoping for successful binge writing).

This summer, we are offering writing days for faculty.  

Feel free to use our WAGs guidelines to set up your own accountability group with a couple of friends or colleagues (no need to be working in the same field).

If you have ideas for how the Writing Institute can support your writing practice, let us know. We are eager to explore ideas.
