Staying on Track: Writing Our Way Through a Global Pandemic
Abstract: It is commonplace for the literature to highlight writing groups that focus on increasing academic productivity. Matters of aesthetic and more pleasurable aspects of writing along with the fulfilment of belongingness that a writing group can provide, particularly in a virtual environment are rare. In this article, we examine the productive and connective pleasure of an online academic writing community, how it kept the community coming together amid a global pandemic, why it located and mobilised the community as academic writers, and how the community engaged and travelled with each other to create a sense of belonging.
