Faculty Writes

Offerings for Faculty

CSU Writes supports research and scholarly writers on proven models of “writing containment” and “writing in social spaces.” Our offerings are designed to support researchers collaboratively. Print the flier. Post the flier. Bring a colleague.

Writing Retreats

CSU Writes offers multiple writing retreat options over the academic year and summer. Faculty retreats during the fall and spring semesters tend to be shorter (1-2 days). Summer retreats are longer with 4- or 5-day retreat options.


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.
