Join a Group

Fall PRG applications now open

Please complete the application only once per semester to avoid duplicate records. Even if you have submitted an application in the past, you should reapply for the current semester as schedules change. For the best chance of being placed in a group, fill out the entire application and be sure you've included your name & email address.

Applicants are encouraged to explore the PRG website, especially our working model, so they understand how PRGs work prior to submitting an application.

Sign Up on our mailing list to be notified when new applications are available each semester.


FALL 2017 PRGs now forming

New members are not limited to the broad disciplines listed, but will be placed based on the compatibility of their work with current membership, which changes over time.


Observe a Peer Review Group

Prospective members are invited to observe a group meeting at the start of each semester to see how the groups work and speak with current members. If you are interested in joining a writing group, consider observing one of our meetings (see our Calendar). You are welcome to observe a group regardless of the discipline. Email kellyc@iastate.edu to observe a group. 


Students are placed in groups based on discipline and availability. Some students may be waitlisted with the opportunity to be placed in a group at a later date should an opening become available or a new group form. More groups may be added to meet student interests if resources allow. 

When initial placements are made, students who have been placed in a group will receive an email offering them a spot in a group. They should respond to the email to confirm their participation and start attending the group. After all groups have been filled, remaining students who have not been placed will be waitlisted and notified by email.
