Writing in college can be long, lonely, and challenging, which can cause student writers to burnout. One of the most effective remedies for these feelings is to participate in a peer writing group. A peer writing group is a supportive community of like-minded writers who form a group to offer mutual support, ideas, and accountability. Working with other student writers creates a safe space to ask questions, troubleshoot issues, and discuss any fears.

The SJSU Writing Center is proud to offer virtual training for any SJSU student to learn how to set up a successful Peer Writing Group. This two-hour training will explain the benefits, discuss best practices, and share tools for four different kinds of peer writing groups: support groups, work groups, feedback groups, and hybrid groups.
