Working with Faculty Writers

Georgianne Moore co authored a chapter in the recently released book Working with Faculty Writers. She and her coauthors told the story of their longstanding writing group as a model for other faculty writers. They discuss the group’s structure, types of feedback, and many other added benefits to writing groups that can result.

The Chapter is titled Feedback and Fellowship: Stories from a successful writing group, contributed by Virginia Fajt (Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology), Fran I. Gelwick (Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences), Verónica Loureiro-Rodríguez (Hispanic Studies), Prudence Merton (Center for Teaching Excellence), Georgianne Moore (Ecosystem Science and Management), María Irene Moyna (Hispanic Studies), and Jill Zarestky (Mathematics) at TAMU

Working with Faculty Writers is a collection of sixteen chapters that highlight current approaches to supporting faculty and graduate student writers. Working with Faculty Writers is edited by Anne Ellen Geller, St. John's University, and Michele Eodice, University of Oklahoma. The foreword, by renowned researcher Bob Boice, invites institutions to offer expert and specialized coaching to faculty writers. Wendy Belcher, author of Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks, remarks the book is "useful to scholars interested in producing more and better publications."
