Silent Zoom Writing Group

Join academics, postgraduates and creatives from all over the world in an online writing group.

Organised by Dr Sophie Weeks and Kyveli Lignou-Tsamantani at the University of York, SZWG is a online writing group. They have run sessions every weekday since lockdown in March 2020, and the group has continued to grow. Currently, there are over 150 members.

​SZWG offers community, accountability, and structure by hosting regular weekday sessions for participants to write together in solidarity.

How does it work?

We write in silence on Zoom (video can be on or off).

Writers join the Zoom meeting and share their goals in the chat.

Each 50-min writing session is followed by a 10-min break.

At the end, we report back on our progress in the chat.

10.00-12.00 GMT
