Writing is an integral aspect of candidature; it’s also an area many Higher Degree Researchers, and supervisors, find challenging. This chapter presents academic or research writing development within a broader ecological model of higher education. It outlines several initiatives you, as a supervisor, can offer or recommend as additional avenues to help strengthen your Higher Degree Researchers’ writing and engagement. These avenues sit at different strata of the writing ecology and include:

- providing co-authoring opportunities
- facilitating writing groups
- developing peer-led groups
- running writing retreats
- developing an ‘always available’ bank of online resources.
