Here's what previous Writing Gym participants had to say about how the gym boosted their writing accountability and productivity:

"I loved the writing gym. It helped me get on track with my writing. The videos and short articles helped me with goal setting, organization, writing tips, etc. I highly recommend participating in the writing gym.” - Leslie Koberna

"This is the first time I've participated in this process. It was a great introduction to me and helped me see the value and importance of having a scheduled time to write.” - Esperanza De La Vega

"A key to writing is being organized and using resources. This gym did more than help me write, it helped me get organized, track my efforts and manage my work. That created more mental space to do the actual writing.” - Nicole Dillard

"The TAA Writing Gym helped me form do-able strategies to write, collaborate, and organize. I finished two manuscripts, said goodbye to two cumbersome projects, collaborated with a partner on another, rewrote some poorly-written assignments, and drafted a chapter outline. I blocked (mostly) dedicated time into my schedule for writing and hope I can continue this practice. I appreciated this series and felt it was helpful. Thank you again.” - Tina Fletcher

“The weekly writing classes and blog articles in the Writing Gym were very helpful, especially those about time management, managing multiple projects, and revising.” - Andrew Reyes

“I appreciate your support of my writing. I got lots of writing done during 6 weeks.”  - Su-Jin Jung
