Writing Groups

MTSU Write is pleased to offer writing groups for writers who want community and accountability. These writing groups are facilitated by one of our mentors, who acts as an organizer and co-participant, sharing their work alongside other members of the group. 

The following groups are open for registration for fall 2022 and will meet via zoom at the following times (listed in central time):

  • YA Lit with Meg Eden: Mondays, 5:30pm-7:00pm: Limited to 4 participants.
  • Flash Nonfiction with Allison Blevins, 7:00pm-8:30pm: Limited to 6 participants.

The registration fee is $75 per semester, which aligns with our mentorship session schedule.

If you’d like to join one of the groups, email mtsuwrite@mtsu.edu. Please share your genre of choice, a short description of the project you’re working on, and a 1-2 page writing sample. Upon acceptance to the group, you will be given a link to pay the registration fee.
