CSU Writes offers faculty opportunities to gather with colleagues from colleges and departments across campus to discuss their academic writing practices and to develop healthy, even happy, writing habits.
CSU's more than 300 Postdoctoral Fellows can attend any workshops, retreats, and offerings that best suit their writing goals and needs.
Sponsored by the Graduate School, graduate students can develop a heathy writing practice and speed their time to degree through GRAD Writes workshops, retreats, consultations, writing groups, and more.

CSU Writes is a writing facilitation program designed for professional researchers and academic writers who are interested in boosting their productivity as they develop a sustainable writing practice.
While select offerings are open to all writers on campus, CSU Writes' primarily serves faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students who write for publication, submission, and/or degree completion.
career-sustaining writing practice and productivity support for CSU’s researchers, faculty, postdocs, & graduate students
write. early. often. better. together.
creates supportive spaces where scholarly writers can gather and discuss their writing, research, and challenges openly and comfortably.
To that end, we ask that participants respect the need for discretion when talking about what happens in a workshop, retreat, or other gathering of writers. Please share what is yours to share. Let others share their own stories of writing challenges and growth.
It is part of our scholarly practice to cultivate trust and mutual support among research writers so that we might write early, often, better, together.

Please Note: CSU Writes is NOT the Writing Center. The Writing Center is housed in the English Department and provides writing consultants who meet with undergraduate and graduate student writers to discuss their current writing project.
