We asked those who had participated in Weekly Open Writing during the Fall 2019 semester what they thought about the program. This is what they said:

"I love the dedicated space and the comaraderie. There are few writing groups on campus, and with so few new hires it is a particular challenge for me -- as a junior faculty member -- to find a writing community. This program also helps with my accountability (to myself) by automatically carving out and protecting time each week for writing."

"It provided accountability -- just having a place to go helps. It's easier to schedule in writing time when there is a dedicated place to do it, where I know I won't have interruptions."

"So far I have completed two book chapters and a proposal for my next book, two journal articles (accepted, double-blind-peer-reviewed), and several book reviews. I also occasionally use the time to take notes on new and important research in my sub-field. Thanks again for all that you do to support us!"
