Summer Academic Working Groups are now forming for the 2013 season. Summer Academic Working Groups (SAWG) are clusters of academics working in related fields or on related topics who agree to exchange work in progress and feedback on a regular basis during the unstructured summer months. Participants often find that the deadlines provided by such a group are at least as valuable to their summer productivity as the feedback itself.
Participation is open to academics of all levels and disciplines, and there is no charge to participate. More information and the registration form are available at
Many graduate student participants are working on their dissertations. Faculty are the fastest-growing segment of participants; those outside the R1 context in particular have found the SAWG very helpful for obtaining feedback on their research. Other 2013 clusters are engaged in creative writing and textbook authoring.
