In this scholarly writers' group, individual scholarly productivity will be fostered through participation in a writing community that encourages and supports the cultivation and completion of writing projects. The hallmarks of this facilitated scholarship community include: developing an individual scholarly writer’s profile; developing a writing project plan; guided peer review of drafts; time for writing; editing deadlines; and celebration of success. Whether working on a manuscript, book project, or other writing project, this experience will help scholars move toward project completion.
