Starting & Sustaining a Writing Group — An Obermann Get It Done Workshop

Get It Done Obermann Lunchtime Workshop Series

Those of us who write either by compulsion or necessity often yearn for a group of co-creators who will keep us company and hold us accountable. Writing groups seem like the answer to the often lonely work of crafting words. In this informal lunchtime session, Naomi Greyser will provide ideas for how to mindfully start a group and then sustain it—which can be trickier than it seems.

Naomi is the head writing coach at the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. She is a faculty member in Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies; English; American Studies; and executive director of POROI. Her current book project, Writing Through Writer’s Block, "unwinds the paradox of productivity, mapping unjust distributions of block and flow across the raced, classed, and gendered terrain of the settler academy."
