Writing groups

In writing group meetings you can discuss difficulties you are having with academic writing, give and receive feedback on written work and write together with other students. The aim of the group is to help group members improve their writing skills and raise the quality of the writing they do for coursework and theses.

The writing group is the most useful thing that happened at SU. Precious time during my first term in Sweden.

A writing group is a weekly meeting where you can share tips on writing with other students and get feedback on your work. In the first meeting, all of the participants decide how the meetings should be run. If you join a group you can choose the activities that will fit your needs best. A member of the writing centre staff is always present, and we help to suggest activities and participate in the feedback giving.

You should never have to do any extra work for the meetings but there is the expectation that all participants will share some writing with the group each week and attend meetings regularly.
