Scholarly Writing Communities

Scholarly Writing Communities enhance academic culture through programming customized to the phases of the scholarly writing process: brainstorming, drafting, peer review & revision, and polishing/publishing. Programs support researchers and writers at all levels in acquiring skills, networking, and increasing scholarly productivity. Whether brainstorming a project, stuck on methodologies, in need of time to write, or celebrating acceptance, a Scholarly Writing Community can support faculty in every stage of their scholarship/research.  Facilitated by a faculty mentor or self-directed, the process provides: support for creating individualized objectives; encouragement from peers; accountability for progress; and celebration of success.
