The goal of a writing group is to make writing less lonely, to establish fixed writing times, and to create space for exchange about writing. Therefore, the Writing Lab of HWG Ludwigshafen organizes a writing group every semester, in which between 3 and 10 people can participate who are currently writing a term paper or thesis. In approximately two-hour meetings, held online or on-site as needed, goals are set, writing is done together, and questions are clarified at the end, feedback is given, and goal achievement is reviewed.

The Writing Lab also supports groups of students who want to start a writing group.

If you are interested in participating in a writing group or starting a writing group yourself, you can contact the Writing Lab at HWG Ludwigshafen by email.
