Postdoctoral Writing Groups

Join a Postdoctoral Writing Accountability Group

A postdoctoral appointment is an excellent opportunity to build your research and publication record. But writing can be intimidating and it is easy to let other responsibilities get in the way of writing productivity. Research shows that joining a writing accountability group can improve publication rates and promote work-life balance.

In the words of a UA postdoc: “My writing accountability group has encouraged me to change from binge writer (intense bursts right before a deadline) to a more regular writer. My group collectively set the small goal to fit in a little bit of writing every day (at least 30 minutes) and then check in with either other. This has helped keep projects (that would have otherwise languished) progressing along to completion. Accountability groups are a must for postdocs who want to increase their writing productivity!”

 

We hope you will join a Postdoctoral Writing Accountability Group!
