Abstract or Summary
  • Writing groups are used regularly in the academic arena, but they are also used in the non-academic community. This paper is an exploration of the use of nonacademic writing groups in Salem, Oregon. In Chapter 2 I discuss the theory behind writing groups--what it is about writing and responding that is beneficial and useful. Chapter 3 explores the roots of writing groups in Salem including some self-improvement groups, which were the precursors of writing groups. Chapter 4 then includes detailed descriptions of the groups which are currently meeting in Salem, including their formats, purposes, and some examples of their processes. Based on this information, the paper discusses the educational and social benefits of writing groups and the role of these groups in the community of Salem, Oregon.
