Storying the Terroir of Collaborative Writing: Like Wine and Food, a Unique Pairing of Mentoring Minds
The authors, two faculty members in a Canadian post-secondary teacher education context, inquired into their collaborative writing process initiated through an informal faculty mentoring relationship. By using a metaphor of carefully pairing exquisite wine with fine food, the authors convey the mutual co-construction of their lived experiences that evolve through relational writing. The authors conclude by noting critical issues and implications regarding collaborative writing that offer insight into the importance of honoring collaborative scholarship within academic contexts.

Collaborative Writing and Dis-Continuing Professional Development: Challenging the Rituals and Rules of the Education Game?
This paper discusses a critical challenge to current paradigms of continuing professional development within higher education institutions. A small group of higher-education-based teacher educators for the English post-compulsory sector describes and exposes the values and processes operating within a particular kind of professional development ‘space’ of their own creation. The main constituents of this way of working are identified and the process is illustrated with reference to the experience of collaborative writing within the group. The focus on criticality leads to an emerging concept of ‘critical collaborative writing’, and the implications of this particular example for higher education colleagues and institutions are explored.
