Faculty Writing Accountability Group

The writing accountability group (WAG) provides faculty with tools, support, and dedicated time to meet their writing goals. Faculty from across Columbia work on a variety of projects, including grant submissions/funding proposals, research articles, monographs, tenure materials, or creative writing pieces. Through structured synchronous virtual sessions, faculty identify the obstacles to their writing and develop the tools to overcome them. In the process, they build a supportive peer community.

    • Biweekly facilitated sessions: Each session is 90 minutes in length, and opens with faculty sharing a success and a challenge. After a period of dedicated writing time, faculty commit to their writing goals for the following session. 
    • Biweekly coworking sessions: During alternating weeks, we offer an optional Zoom coworking time so that faculty can keep their writing momentum with their peers.

    Each group has a dedicated Slack channel in the Faculty Slack workspace so members can post their weekly goals and keep in touch between sessions.
