Faculty Writing Community

Brief Description:  This is a community of faculty in a quiet and comfortable room for four days (June 3rd - 6th), from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. each day to write. That’s it. Nothing else. Just writing articles, books, manuscript revisions, or other scholarly pieces. FDEV will provide coffee, snacks, and lunch everyday to keep you going. There will be some time devoted to peer review of drafts so you can get feedback along the way. Many faculty write in the summer anyway. This community is a great way to hold yourself accountable for your writing projects and be surrounded in support during the process. If you’re interested, complete the application by Monday, May 27th.
