Writing Accountability for Research Writers

Set & meet your weekly writing goals

CSU Writes‘ Writing Accountability for Research Projects (WARP) helps faculty, postdocs, and researchers build momentum on writing projects with bi-weekly email check-ins, weekly writing tips, and semester goal-setting & scheduling support.​

The process is simple; the accountability is powerful:

  • Complete a Writing Accountability for Research Projects registration form (below).
  • CSU Writes will contact you to gather additional details about your current writing projects and goals.
  • Set your weekly goals.
  • When CSU Writes emails on Monday, tell us what writing or project goals you set for the week.
  • When CSU Writes emails on Friday, tell us what goals you met or what goals you will continue to work toward.
  • Rinse and repeat...weekly.
  • At the end of your package duration (semester, month, summer), recognize (& celebrate) what you've accomplished!

The semester or summer writing Writing Accountability for Research Projects is a good option for writers who have multiple projects or one large writing project to complete within 10- to 15-weeks.

If you are finding this option mid-semester or mid-summer… feel free to sign up for the remaining weeks! No time like the present to build writing momentum.

Month-long Package Option

This is a great option for faculty writers who have identified a specific upcoming deadline and who wish to finish their project with greater ease.Selecting a month of writing accountability can help you be more realistic about your schedule and more strategic about when you will write a lot–even during the “busyness” of a semester.
