Psychiatry Departmental Writing Group

The Psychiatry Department Writing group is a collegial working group, which meets monthly to develop effective writing skills as members progress in their ongoing writing projects. Skills are developed to increase productivity, to implement effective writing strategies, to reach audiences, and to target journals successfully for acceptance. The group provides step-by-step support as members reach their individual writing goals.
