Accountability Writing Groups

Facilitated by the faculty mentoring program, groups will be formed to offer support to faculty writing proposals, abstracts, articles, book chapters, and presentations. Faculty at any level (tenure-track or not) are welcome.

Accountability writing groups are not your traditional writing group. Instead of reading one another's work — which risks becoming time consuming — these groups offer a very efficient way to increase your productivity and ensure your research and scholarship are on track. Accountability writing groups meet to "just write."

If this sounds like just the thing for you, please attend an informational meeting​ or contact Dr. Cecilia Maldonado at​ ​ceciliam@unlv.nevada.edu or ext. 5-3410 for more information.
