Writing Group


Application Deadline: Monday, September 9, 2019 (but we will consider more applications after that if we have room)


What is the GW Writing Support Group?


The Writing Support Group is a safe place for people who find the writing process challenging. The group is led by its participants, who define their personal and group goals and determine how they would like to focus each session. The group is supported by a Writing Center consultant, who has experience working with many types of writing assignments and many approaches to writing.



When does it meet?


For Fall 2019 the Writing Support group will meet on Mondays from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, starting Monday, September 9th.



Where does it meet?


Come to the Writing Center, and we will direct you to the meeting room.



Who may join?


We welcome students at all levels and from all parts of the university who are committed to participating in weekly sessions to write and support each other through writing challenges.  People interested in joining the group should apply using the link above. We will limit the group to 10 people. If there is a lot of interest, we will consider creating multiple groups in the fall.


The Writing Group will be supported by Writing Center consultant Kate.


Our Group Consultant:

Discipline: Business Economics & Public Policy

Areas of Interest: Economics, Political Science, Psychology  

Teaching Philosophy:

Through the implementation of a nonjudgemental and flexible tutoring style, I encourage any and all writers to feel comfortable to voice their needs and concerns to me in my sessions.

 Regardless of what writing concerns or obstacles you might face, I will eagerly work with you to make sure your needs are addressed, as I also have a wide range of experience working with individuals with learning disabilities.


The Writing Support Group is coordinated through the GW Writing Center.  The Writing Support Group is not a therapy group; it is not affiliated with GWU Counseling & Psychological Services or Disabled Student Services.
