Faculty Writing Groups

Designed to support a creative, productive environment for faculty to focus on writing, the Faculty Writing Groups are a joint venture with our University Writing Program (UWP). At any given time, the Writing Groups include individual writing sessions, goal setting, directed writing activities, and individual consultations. In collaboration with the director of the UWP, two different writing support groups are available. In the “accountability” group, faculty meet regularly – face to face and virtually – to keep each other motivated, engaged, and productive on their individual writing projects. In the “response” group, faculty representing different subject fields meet to share drafts and provide feedback on each other’s writing. These groups combine the basics of scholarly writing peer review and are open to all faculty. If you are interested in the Faculty Writing Groups, contact Dr. David Martins, dsmgla@rit.edu.
