Writing Group Idea

I don’t have any experience with publishing. I want to publish. I have talked to a friend about putting together a writing group.

This looks like a good idea for that.

We have what we call ‘Friday afternoon forum’ in our department. We do this monthly. Whoever has a paper they are about to submit sends it to the department (there are usually two). We then meet over beverages and discuss the papers. It works well in three ways: 1) helps identify what the reviewers are likely to comment on; 2) lets each other know what we are working on; 3) creates a social interaction between us that enhances collegiality.
