|Title:||It’s always a pleasure: exploring productivity and pleasure in a writing group for early career academics||Contributor(s):||Dwyer, Angela (author); Lewis, Bridget (author); McDonald, Fiona (author); Burns, Marcelle (author)||Publication Date:||2012-07||Early Online Version:||2012-01-31||DOI:||10.1080/0158037X.2011.580734||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/26923||Abstract:||The professional development needs of early career academics (ECAs) are increasingly subject to scrutiny. The literature notes writing groups can be successful in increasing research outputs and improving research track records - a core concern for ECAs. However, the pressure on ECAs to publish takes the pleasure out of writing for many. We argue writing groups, created by and for ECAs, can provide an environment for ECAs to (re)produce pleasure in writing and participation in the processes of academic review and debate. In addition, our experience of a writing group was that it provided a platform of social and emotional support contributing to our personal well-being and professional development.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Studies in Continuing Education, 34(2), p. 129-144||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||0158-037X
