MeetWriteNow is 'judgment-free zone,' knit together by multiple opportunities to meet, connect and build community with one another. We are unapologetically committed to sharing our struggles and celebrating our individual and collective success. Through participation in our daily co-writing sessions, group forums, interactive chats and monthly writing challenges, you will gain a rich mix of synchronous and asynchronous opportunities for social connection and academic support for writing development.
What gets measured, gets done. As participant in the monthly writing challenge you gain access to a personalized writing tracker and community leaderboard to monitor your writing progress and celebrate your writing success. Use our digital tools to gain powerful data about your writing tendencies that will help you sustain and adapt strategies to meet writing goals.
MeetWriteNow Results Coaches are individuals who have acquired PhDs from research-intensive institutions, and are currently serving as faculty on the tenure-track, and/or educators, scholars and researchers within university and college settings.
Your Results Coach will help you clarify your writing project and support you in translating that project into realistic daily/weekly monthly goals. Daily co-writing sessions offer opportunities to integrate focused writing time with timely writing coaching. You will consistently receive "in-the-moment" support and timely feedback on your writing from a Results Coach committed to seeing you win. Troubleshoot problems as they emerge to sustain momentum as you push forward in your writing project.
What is included in membership?
All members gain access to up to co-writing sessions, offered 3 times a day and 5 days per week (Monday through Friday).

What happens after I sign-up?
After you secure membership with MeetWriteNow you will be able to access all the community benefits. You will be contacted by a MeetWriteNow results coach to discuss your writing project, your goals for the month and to support you in using the digital writing track.

What happens during co-writing sessions?
The format of the co-writing session is designed to provide an opportunity for members to meet and write. After you log-on, you and other writers will be greeted by your results coach and provided an opportunity to connect with the community (verbally and/or in the chat) and share your goals for the session. After goals have been shared, all members will be provided 1 hour of focused writing time. Members can opt to leave their video/audio on or turn it off. After the writing time has concluded, members will come back to talk about their progress and plan for the next session.
For members who have purchased the "Community plus Coaching" may use the hour of time reserved for focused writing as opportunity for one-on-one or small group coaching, including troubleshooting during writing process and/or receiving feedback on your writing.
