@melovell .@JeffreyKeefer Good morning #adjunctchat. Just making a much needed coffee. Be right with you. 4/29/2014 15:58
@AdjunctChat RT @melovell: .@JeffreyKeefer Good morning #adjunctchat. Just making a much needed coffee. Be right with you. 4/29/2014 16:00
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Thanks for offering to facilitate this week’s #AdjunctChat, especially from a part of the world where today is Wednesday morning! 4/29/2014 16:01
@Comprof1 @melovell @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Where are you that it’s morning? 4/29/2014 16:01
@melovell @Comprof1 I’m on east coast Australia. 6am here. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:02
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Great to see you here as well. How is the weather upstate? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:03
@melovell Who else is with us today? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:04
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Thanks for making it up so early. Seems our academic tasks are never done! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:04
@Comprof1 @melovell #adjunctchat that’s early to get up although it’s the most productive time of day for me! 4/29/2014 16:04
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Ha, it is early for me, but I know this is a standard time for morning people. I’ll be relying on the coffee. 😉 #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:05
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer relatively cold! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Can you tell us a little about your experiences with writers’ groups that led to today’s #AdjunctChat? 4/29/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Can you tell us a little about your experiences with writers’ groups that led to today’s #AdjunctChat? 4/29/2014 16:08
@melovell Well perhaps we should make a start. Hopefully a few people will join in as we go. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:08
@LitProfSuz Hi #adjunctchat – I’m in the midst of grading, but keeping on eye on the chat too! 4/29/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yes, winter jackets here in #nyc yet again today. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:08
@melovell @LitProfSuz Nice to see you, glad you could come. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell I am often surprised by how people follow in the background or otherwise make use of the #AdjunctChat transcript. 4/29/2014 16:09
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Oh really? Somehow I thought you guys would be getting nice and warm by now. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:09
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Love it that @melovell is speaking to us from the future! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Welcome; you are doing the grading I promised for my students by class tomorrow night! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Welcome; you are doing the grading I promised for my students by class tomorrow night! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:10
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @melovell I have office hours at 7 Glad it’s ,ight out again at 6. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @melovell Almost like an adjunct psychic! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:10
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer This #adjunctchat came about because our chats often brushed on the topic of writers’ groups. Time to look in more detail! 4/29/2014 16:10
@Comprof1 @melovell @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat we were last year but it has snowed up here as late as mid may. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:11
@melovell Writing is one of the most difficult things for adjuncts to fit in. Writers’ groups can help build writing habits. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:12
@melovell RT @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Love it that @melovell is speaking to us from the future! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:12
@Comprof1 @melovell @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I read the intro. I don’t know much about writers circle but we have research support group 4/29/2014 16:12
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Lol. Too funny. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:13
@LitProfSuz @melovell I would agree – but what stategies do you have for connecting with other #AdjunctChat when they aren’t on campus or have offices? 4/29/2014 16:13
@melovell @LitProfSuz That’s a really good question. I’m without a group at the moment, so I think that’s worth exploring. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @melovell Yes, I would like to hear more about writers circles as well #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:14
@Comprof1 @melovell #adjunctchat we present research and get feedback sometimes on “writing” sometimes on ideas blocking writing 4/29/2014 16:14
@melovell I’m going to push on to Q1 as I think we’re covering that ground already #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:15
@melovell Q1 Have you ever been involved in an academic writing group? What was its goals and structure? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:15
@LitProfSuz @melovell I am attempting to organize a virtual group using a Google doc to set goals & track progress, but it is slow going #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:16
@melovell Here I think we can define writing group pretty broadly. Both informal and formal groups can be great #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:16
@Comprof1 @melovell @LitProfSuz Has anyone ever used google groups, google docs, research gate, or wiki for writing support? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:16
@melovell In my case, my best experience was with an informal (but committed & regular) writers’ group I set up with peers during my PhD. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer #AcWri #ECRchat RT @melovell: Q1 Have you ever been involved in an academic writing group? What was its goals and structure? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:17
@LitProfSuz @melovell A1 As grad stdt, I ran a group for 4 yrs for grad stdt.Focused on goal setting, time management & progress tracking. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:17
@melovell @LitProfSuz A virtual group? Very nice idea. Forums can also be a good site for this kind of thing #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell A1 I have never been in a writing group. I like the notion but am not sure how it ideally works or how to find one #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:18
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @melovell how did you put together group? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @melovell A1 How are you looking to organize one? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:18
@melovell @LitProfSuz Yes, we did a similar thing. Met every couple of weeks to read one students’ work and provide feedback too #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell A1 Were they peers in the same program or interdisciplinary ones? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:19
@melovell That group is no longer meeting but it built a small community of people really familiar with each others’ work. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:19
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @melovell I’m thinking you need to create one as adjunct rather than find one #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:19
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat A1 I also participated in #AcWriMo 2013 http://t.co/XguQzrNqBX 4/29/2014 16:20
@melovell Even a couple of years after it finished, my writing group colleagues still try to promote each others’ work to wider academia #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:20
@Comprof1 @melovell @LitProfSuz were they in same department or interests? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:20
@melovell @Comprof1 Yes, this is something I should do. My post-phd life has been unstable workwise so not always easy to identify peers #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:21
@Comprof1 RT @LitProfSuz: #AdjunctChat A1 I also participated in #AcWriMo 2013 http://t.co/XguQzrNqBX 4/29/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell @LitProfSuz A1 Was your work all related or very different? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:21
@melovell @LitProfSuz Ooh yes, I love #acwrimo. It shows that there are lots of ways to bring sociality to writing beyond formal groups #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell A1 Have you all remained in touch with one another as an unintended side effect? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:22
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz In my case it was, we all worked on ethnic/indigenous politics stuff in one way or another #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Wonderful, unexpected benefit! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @melovell I think you may be right about this one . . . .#AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:23
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Yes we all became good friends. We’re a bit spread out now so the writers group kind of fizzled. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:23
@Comprof1 @melovell I started going to the research consortium and have thought of going to dept pro seminar #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:24
@melovell I’m going to push on with the questions, but feel free to continue earlier threads of conversation #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:24
@melovell Q2 What have you gained from being a members of a writers’ group or what would you hope to gain from this kind of group? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:24
@LitProfSuz @melovell #adjunctchat My weekly group was only goals/progress. Had a bi-monthly group of dif ppl to read work. Traded off who led. 4/29/2014 16:24
@Comprof1 @melovell one thing holding me back is embarrassment at only being adjunct #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I recall hearing about #AcWriMo though it did not work with my schedule. Wonder if anything similar is planned? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I recall hearing about #AcWriMo though it did not work with my schedule. Wonder if anything similar is planned? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:25
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat The group that read work had related interests. Limited text to about 5 pages. Writer had to set a guiding ? 4/29/2014 16:26
@melovell @Comprof1 I hadn’t thought of it that way, but I can identify with that feeling. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:26
@melovell @Comprof1 I have been reluctant to start a group when I don’t know where I’ll be working in a few months time. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:26
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I think it will be every November. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:27
@Comprof1 @melovell I actually got a book chapter out of consortium. Also, makes me feel connected to academics #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz What sort of a guiding questions? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:27
@melovell Benefits to online groups and forums is that they can continue regardless of where you’ll working or the movement of members #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:27
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @melovell URGH! You are not an “only”. You are valuable, knowledgeable and caring. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:28
@melovell For online: I have found #acwrimo and the #phinished forums to be good sites for support and creating milestones #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @melovell Perhaps this is something we can consider within our little #AdjunctChat community at some point, even organically? 4/29/2014 16:28
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz every year. There was talk of maybe doing it in the summer also. #adjunctchat #acwri 4/29/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Interesting; I don’t feel at all embarrassed. If anything I tend to think just the opposite! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:28
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat The writer had to have at least 1 question for the peer reader/reviewer. What they wanted feedback on. 4/29/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer RT @melovell: For online: I have found #acwrimo and the #phinished forums to be good sites for support and creating milestones #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:29
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer I think it depends on whether you’re where you want to be. In my case I was looking for longer term appointment #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @melovell I have always collaborated at a distance with coauthors so virtual group not daunting #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:30
@melovell @LitProfSuz That’s a good idea. It helps people to get focused feedback which may be much more substantive and useful #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell @Comprof1 Why do you think you need a writing group in the same institution? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Please keep us informed! #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:31
@melovell Pushing along…Q3 Have you found social writing situations beneficial or do you prefer to see writing as a solitary endeavour? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:31
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer I haven’t got a car. Realistically, writers groups have to be near work or online for me. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Ahh, got it. Did they submit the work before the meeting or all there in real time? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:32
@LitProfSuz @melovell Yes, by limiting text to about 5 pgs & having focused feedback ?s, more ppl actually read/commented. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:32
@melovell A3, I’m a bit introverted so I tend to lapse to seeing writing as a solitary endeavour. But I know that social is effective! #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer A2 If I were in an academic writing group, I would benefit from the pressure of having something done by a specific date #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:33
@LitProfSuz @melovell Longer text or a full paper,writer would send it to all & ask who had time to read/comment; seperate from our mtg #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I would also benefit from having concrete feedback that would later help before the formal peer review process #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:33
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Yes that’s a definite advantage. You’re less likely to drift if people are waiting for something #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:34
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell A3 Can you talk a bit about what you mean by social writing? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:34
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Before the mtg by 2 days. #AdjunctChat Cuz we all know we procrastinate anyways! :^) 4/29/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 RT @LitProfSuz: @melovell Yes, by limiting text to about 5 pgs & having focused feedback ?s, more ppl actually read/commented. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:34
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer This also takes the pressure off in terms of peer review. Writing is in constant review so less of a hurdle #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:35
@Comprof1 RT @JeffreyKeefer: A2 I would also benefit from having concrete feedback that would later help before the formal peer review process #Adjun… 4/29/2014 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer RT @LitProfSuz: @JeffreyKeefer Before the mtg by 2 days. #AdjunctChat Cuz we all know we procrastinate anyways! :^) 4/29/2014 16:36
@LitProfSuz @melovell A3 I’m more focused in public places. I feel more pressure to perform. I go to coffee shops #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:36
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer For me, writing is social when I’m sharing work in less polished forms, talking about it & seeing people writing #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 What have you found the most challenging with online writer groups? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:37
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer I think its easy to drift on writing goals because of other urgent tasks. Social writing normalises writing. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 I actually Ned the help in the idea generation stage. Once I’ve talked it out, don’t really need much feedback in writing. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:37
@LitProfSuz @melovell @JeffreyKeefer Ah, yes-I have to talk my ideas out. Usually, I will ppt it & invite a friend to coffee to talk it out #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:38
@melovell @Comprof1 I think that’s part of the process too. And a good thing to be aware of. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer A3 I have always written individually, though have collaborated on papers (you write the intro, I will do the lit review, etc.) #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:39
@melovell @Comprof1 Is that harder with online forums/groups? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:39
@melovell We’re heading this way anyway so…Q4 What are some of the challenges or drawbacks of writers’ groups? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 So the initial feedback to help flesh out the ideas and direction, after which you are independent? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:39
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer getting people to participate. #adjunctchat usually a follow up skype is useful 4/29/2014 16:39
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is Experiences with Writers’ Groups. All are welcome! @melovell http://t.co/tsWhtRDMON 4/29/2014 16:40
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is Experiences with Writers’ Groups. All are welcome! @melovell http://t.co/tsWhtRDMON 4/29/2014 16:40
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer That’s a whole new ballgame. Groups/coauthors that literally write together not just talk about their writing #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:40
@LitProfSuz @melovell A4 I have found that getting commitment and following thru is tough. Once committed, it works well. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Got it. How many seem to work out best in your writing groups? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:41
@melovell We’ve talked about writing group challenges a bit already. Keeping them going is a challenge, especially when people move. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @melovell Yes. That’s why phone call or skype comes in handy. #adjunctchat then follow up online 4/29/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell That is valuable, no doubt, though I really need to get going with two articles I have been outlining but not writing #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:42
@melovell Best number for a writers’ group? Maybe 5-7people? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:42
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @melovell We were in the same department. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:43
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Me too! New job other busy-ness is getting in way. Need a group to keep me accountable! #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @melovell Invite the members, each week state goals, check-in at the end of week on progress. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:44
@Comprof1 @melovell @JeffreyKeefer My coauthors and I often will have one person write after extensive discussion then pass back & forth #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:44
@Comprof1 RT @LitProfSuz: @melovell A4 I have found that getting commitment and following thru is tough. Once committed, it works well. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:44
@melovell I think the other challenge is that people are sometimes worried about group dynamics / politics #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer RT @melovell: I think the other challenge is that people are sometimes worried about group dynamics / politics #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:45
@Comprof1 @ai1sa @JeffreyKeefer Jump in anytime. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @melovell Wow, that sounds like some process you have in place #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:45
@LitProfSuz @melovell 4-6 if you are reading ppl’s work. 5-7 if goal setting/progress. Enough when some1 doesn’t show, can still work. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:46
@melovell Members of a group have to be on the same page about the purpose of group. No group can be all things to all people. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:46
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @melovell Have you set deadlines? Use #acwri at anytime. Community is very supportive. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @ai1sa @Comprof1 Great idea! Can you talk more about this (and use the tag #AdjunctChat just so it appears more easily for the group)? 4/29/2014 16:47
@melovell Sometimes we need different groups (formal & informal, online, face-to-face) for writing together, accountability, feedback #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:48
@LitProfSuz @melovell Agreed! Have a clear purpose set at first meeting. Most writers have more than 1 group. #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Do you find it useful to lay those writing group ground rules right at the beginning? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @melovell at least 4 active with total of no more than 7 for fo.rmal wring group #AdjunctChat Gives flexibility for members w/ busy schedule 4/29/2014 16:49
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @melovell @JeffreyKeefer I just finished one w/ 2 others.We each had a section. 1 person led in revisions for voice #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:49
@melovell In my experience groups work best when people know each other beforehand, when the focus is clear, when meetings are regular #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:49
@Comprof1 RT @melovell: Members of a group have to be on the same page about the purpose of group. No group can be all things to all people. #adjunct… 4/29/2014 16:50
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Yes, absolutely. Even informal groups should be clear about purpose and might starts as a small commitment #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:50
@melovell Small commitments are easier to make, e.g. read 5 pages or an outline and meet once a month. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:51
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Recommended for goal set/progress groups “How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing”- Paul Silvia, 4/29/2014 16:51

@melovell We’re winding down now so I’ll ask last question. This is one that those catching up later might want to think about… #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:53
@Comprof1 @melovell and having regular times even virtual for meeting helps maintain momentum #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:53

@melovell Q5 What questions do you have for #adjunctchat participants about starting or running a writers’ group? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz This book? http://t.co/n9LsVlBAai #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:54
@melovell @Comprof1 Yes! Otherwise it doesn’t work well as an incentive to get work done. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:54

@ai1sa writing with critical friend via skype means we commit to a time 2 write & 2 reading eachothers work #adjunctchat great for ecr too #ecrchat 4/29/2014 16:56
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yep. It is easy to read and short. Focuses on creating a group, setting writing goals, tracking progress #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:56
@melovell My question would be, have you run successful writing groups outside of current centre/school and what makes those work best? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:56

@Comprof1 @melovell how can you start a virtual group? What platform would any of you suggest? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:56

@MMstrikesback RT @Comprof1: @melovell and having regular times even virtual for meeting helps maintain momentum #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:58
@Comprof1 @ai1sa how did you pick your critical friend? #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:58
@ai1sa Done this for a couple of yrs so now familiar enough w each others areas 2 b useful. Not essential 2 share same methodology #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:58
@JeffreyKeefer @ai1sa With the same people? #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 16:59
@melovell This has encouraged me to think again about how to introduce social element into my writing. I’ve let it lapse a bit lately. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 16:59
@ai1sa @Comprof1 she was a phd student at the same uni, difft supervisors, difft fields. We also meet at a writing retreat 1x/yr #AdjunctChat 4/29/2014 17:00
@melovell I think starting with people whose work I’m interested in is a good place to start. Time to set regular times to exchange work. #adjunctchat 4/29/2014 17:00
@melovell Well I’m afraid I’ve got to go get ready for work. Thanks to everyone who took part in #adjunctchat. Do keep the discussion going. 🙂 4/29/2014 17:01
