get connected to your project & other writers at CSU

CSU Writes Graduate Student Writing Groups are interdisciplinary and often connect graduate students from across campus to each writing group participant meet their writing goals.

Writing groups help graduate students identify writing obstacles, see ways to move forward, and produce the documents they need to successfully complete their program requirements, access funding, and build their 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 graduate students build momentum on projects: manuscripts, proposals, reports, posters, conference papers, and more.

English Language Learner (ELL) Writing Groups (4-6 members) are designed for non-native English writers. See the ELL Writing Group webpage for more information.
