New Faculty Orientation 2021

New Faculty Orientation will take place on August 16, 2021 via Zoom.

Weekly Open Writing

We are continuing Weekly Open Writing this spring, in an online format. The Weekly Open Writing program offers accountability and community to support writing productivity. The scheduled sessions are blocks of unstructured, quiet writing time. This spring, the program will continue in an online format, beginning the first week of January.

Mondays and Thursdays | 10:00am - 12:00pm

We asked those who had participated in Weekly Open Writing during the Fall 2019 semester what they thought about the program. This is what they said:

"I love the dedicated space and the camaraderie. There are few writing groups on campus, and with so few new hires it is a particular challenge for me -- as a junior faculty member -- to find a writing community. This program also helps with my accountability (to myself) by automatically carving out and protecting time each week for writing."

"It provided accountability -- just having a place to go helps. It's easier to schedule in writing time when there is a dedicated place to do it, where I know I won't have interruptions."

"So far I have completed two book chapters and a proposal for my next book, two journal articles (accepted, double-blind-peer-reviewed), and several book reviews. I also occasionally use the time to take notes on new and important research in my sub-field. Thanks again for all that you do to support us!"
