3 Ways a Writing Cohort Will Transform Your Community
How the power of writing cohorts can bring new life to online communities
After running 14 cohorts for communities across the internet, I’ve learned that writing cohorts help strengthen, level up, and grow communities.
Let’s break down each benefit.
1. Writing cohorts help your community connect on a deeper level
In a writing cohort, everyone is working toward the shared goal of publishing their writing. The shared struggle bonds communities in ways that passive learning cannot.
With the forcing function of writing a new 1000-word post every week, community members will have deeper, more constructive conversations — rather than surface-level engagement.
This type of engagement builds deeper connections that will increase the potential for community members to contribute their time, energy, and resources to support and champion your community.
2. Writing cohorts help your community level up
Writing is a fundamental skill. Through the structure of the cohort, participants will write more and learn through action.
In addition, the structure of the cohort gives community members the space and guidance for asynchronous and live feedback to improve each other’s writing.
Arming your community with strong communicators and clear thinkers will have downstream positive impacts that will help the community achieve its goals.
3. Writing cohorts help your community publish written content to spread the message of your community
Writing cohorts help community members publish their writing. And creating member-generated content will spread the authentic message of your community to the world.
Sharing your community’s voice will show more people on the internet what your community stands for, and they’ll be more likely to want to join in and contribute.
