Collaborative Writing Strategies

Decisions about organizational issues result in a collaborative writing strategy for the group. Studies have shown that some common collaborative strategies used by professionals in a variety of fields include the following (Ede and Lunsford):

  1. The team plans and outlines the task; then each writer prepares his or her part, and the group compiles the individual parts and revises the document as needed.

  2. The team plans and writes as indicated, but only one group member revises.

  3. The team plans and outlines the writing task, then one member prepares a draft, and the team revises and edits.

  4. One member of the team plans and writes a draft, and then the group revises the draft.

  5. One or more person(s) plan(s) and write(s) the draft, and then one or more revise(s) the draft without the involvement of the original author(s).

  6. One member dictates, and another transcribes and edits.
