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 is holding workshops, writing retreats, editing groups, and "show up & write." sessions remotely per CSU COVID-19 protocols. Look to event webpages for additional information or for remote access.

May you and yours be and remain healthy. 

Until we meet again, may your writing be brief, frequent, low-stress, and highly rewarding.

drop-in writing sessions for CSU's research writers


CSU Writes workshops address the 4 areas academic writers encounter their greatest challenges: Space, Time, Energy / Momentum, and Academic Style. 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.
