Connecting with other writers across the advising profession will allow you: to receive valuable and worthwhile feedback, to gain insight into the research and writing process of your colleagues, to maintain accountability so that you make sufficient progress on your projects, and to learn about significant ideas across our profession.
Using ZOOM (a virtual meeting platform), we will organize groups according to your needs within the writing process. Choose a group that fits your place in the process, sign up, and we'll contact you to organize a time that works for you and your colleagues who are at a similar place in the research and writing process. Groups will be autonomous and can plan subsequent meetings and regularity based on the group's needs.

Description of groups:
- Group 1: Idea Generation
“As a practicing academic advisor (primary role or faculty), I see the need for research and writing that deepens my engagement with the profession. I’d like to meet with a virtual writing group to discuss ideas and how my unique experience could be transformed into a journal article or research study.”
- Group 2: Idea Development
“As a practicing academic advisor (primary role or faculty), I have an idea I would like to share with my colleagues or that I think would make a great research study. I’d like to meet with a virtual writing group to discuss with my colleagues how I can take my idea and move it forward effectively.”
- Group 3: Drafting and Revising
“As a primary role or faculty advisor, I have an initial draft of a journal article or research study, and I need feedback. I would like to meet with a virtual writing group of my colleagues to gain critical feedback on what I’ve written and developed thus far.”
- One-on-One Writing Consultation
“My situation is unique at the moment and not described in the other three groups. I’d like to be paired with a writing consultant for a one-on-one virtual meeting to discuss the status of my project or other issue related to research.”
