FACULTY & RESEARCHER Writing Groups

connecting writers across CSU

CSU Writes FACULTY & RESEARCHER Writing Groups help research writers focus and build momentum on writing projects. Being part of a group will help members identify writing obstacles, move forward on multiple projects, and produce the manuscripts and proposals that, ultimately, build and sustain careers.

Types of groups

Accountability Groups (3-5 members) are arranged to help writers be "accountable" for setting and meeting their writing goals. Set, discuss, and work to achieve your writing goals as you help others do the same at weekly meetings through the semester.

Write-On-Site Groups (3+ members) consist of writers who write together weekly. Some groups meet at existing show up & write. sessions; some groups write together elsewhere. Discussion and accountability to set and meet writing goals is also part of these groups.

Feedback Groups (3-5 members) are arranged so that writers give and receive feedback on their writing. Weekly meetings also help researchers build momentum on projects: manuscripts, proposals, reports, posters, conference papers, and more.
