This paper considers one particular Writer Development1 (WD) group of MA students from a small UK university. While asserting that writers' groups can, in general, be beneficial to master's-degree-level TESOL students, the specific focus of the paper is on one activity that was undertaken by the WD group: The collaborative construction of a model of the writing process. I will first give a brief background of writers' groups before going on to explain the need for a new model of the writing process. After describing the model that was constructed by the WD group, I will briefly present some data that shows how the writers used the model and perceived it as beneficial. Finally, I will suggest some possible avenues for further research on, and uses for, the model.
