Scholarly Writing Community: Finish Your Writing Project
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Thursdays 6/12, 6/19, 7/17, 7/24 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM; lunch will be provided
In this scholarly writers' group, individual scholarly productivity will be fostered through participation in a writing community that encourages and supports writing projects. The hallmarks of this facilitated scholarship community include: developing a scholarly writer’s profile; developing a writing project plan; guided peer review of drafts; time for writing; editing deadlines; and celebration of success. Whether working on a manuscript, book project, or other writing project, this experience will help scholars move toward project completion. Participants need be present for four meetings-- either in person or via Google Hangout or Skype. Faculty working on both qualitative and quantitative scholarly projects are welcome to apply. This group will be limited to 8 faculty members total.
