The purpose of the writers' group is to enable colleagues to set aside dedicated time and space on a regular basis to meet and work on relevant journal articles, book chapters etc. The main purpose of the weekly group is to write, so discussion and other activities are kept to a minimum. Research in this area has shown that this model works well in assisting people to write regularly and to make continuous progress.
