What makes writers’ groups flourish, or fizzle?
Are you part of a writers' group or interested in starting one? In this interactive seminar, Dr Sarah Haas will present her research on factors that contribute to writers’ group sustainability, and take participants through a method of setting up writers’ groups so they are more likely to flourish than fizzle.
Dr Sarah Haas has been working with writers for over 30 years, teaching in Japan, the UK, Denmark, the US, and the Benelux countries. She currently works part time as a teaching fellow at Ghent and Copenhagen Universities. Sarah has created research-based tools to help writers develop their skills, productivity, self-efficacy, and identities as writers. She also runs a small business, where she works with and for writers, running writers’ workshops, writers’ groups, and guided writing retreats.
Staff and students are all welcome. It would be useful for a few members of a writing group to attend but is not necessary.
