Abstract The paper examines the benefits and efficacies of cohort-based supervision of creative writers through the case study analysis of two creative writing cohorts established at the Queensland University of Technology. Surveys of and interviews with participants suggest in completion times and in the quality of work improvements arise principally through the mechanism of positive peer interaction and monitoring. There are three implications flowing from the study: i) cohort-based supervision is practical; ii) that the creative writing workshop is a long established and now refined mode of cohort-based supervision; and iii) that cohort-based candidature suggests authorship is a more collaborative task than is usually conceived.
