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.

CSU Writes Introduces Buddy



CSU Writes workshops address the 5 areas academic writers encounter their greatest challenges: Space, Time, Energy / Momentum, Academic Style, and Collaboration. Topics change each semester and explore the most current studies and trends in scholarly writing productivity and publishing.


Research writing can feel isolating and be all too easy to “put off until tomorrow.” Writers who attend retreats access a writing community here at CSU and tend to produce much more writing than they would on their own. Writing retreats are generally held on CSU’s main campus. Virtual retreats are held on Zoom or MSTeams.
