Webinar & Workshop Topics

Show Up and Write! meets weekly in the Center for Faculty Development (CFD), and provides a quiet open space for dedicated writing time. This session is offered in the CFD space (International Center, 319) and via Zoom this fall. The writing group aims to support faculty and staff research by designating time for writing and increasing productivity through peer support and personal accountability.  Bring your computer and plan to focus time on writing an article, book chapter, grant proposal, blog, or other project.  

Show Up and Write! will meet every Thursday from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. beginning August 26, 2021 and will conclude December 2. These sessions are come-and-go as needed for your schedule, and does not include peer exchange. Faculty and staff from all disciplines and ranks are welcome to attend.

The CFD will also be hosting monthly Show Up & Write Retreats which are extended sessions of time for you to be able to dive in deeper. Retreats are held once a month on Fridays from 8:30 am - Noon. Fall 2021 retreats are scheduled for September 3, October 1, November 5, and December 3.
