Writing groups

In a writing group you can discuss the challenges of academic writing, give and receive feedback on written work and write with other students. The aim of the group is to help you improve the quality of your writing.

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. A consultant from the Academic Writing Service is always present, and we help to suggest activities and contribute to 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.

All wriring group meetings are held via Zoom. To participate, you need to be a registered student at Stockholm University and you need to be logged in to Zoom with your university account. For more information on how to use Zoom, visit Serviceportalen:
