Writing group for faculty writers

Faculty Writers Workshop, Summer 2020
Wednesday, June 3, 10–1 p.m.; Wednesday, June 10, 10–1 p.m.

Drake faculty members are invited to participate in an intensive version of the Faculty Writing Workshop (FWW) focused on using the summer effectively for our scholarship. We will meet from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, and Wednesday, June 10. The FWW will be co-facilitated by Nate Holdren (LPS) and En Li (History). Our goal will be to help set ourselves up to make progress on our scholarship over the summer. We will draw from Joli Jensen’s book Write No Matter What and discuss it to the degree that participants find it useful. The session will also include discussion ​on how to carve out time for writing while teaching, a workshop on better integrating research and teaching, and on-site writing time. We will also discuss coordinating writing support and intellectual community for Drake faculty writers over the summer.

This writing group is generously supported by the Center for the Humanities. There are spots for ten faculty participants. Should more than 10 individuals express interest, priority shall be given to 1) Those who actively participated in the previous Faculty Writing Groups, 2) Tenure-track faculty who are not yet tenured, 3) Faculty who are members of groups under-represented, and 4) Faculty members whose works are related to humanities

Participants who commit to the whole time for both sessions will receive a small stipend.

If you are interested in participating, fill out the interest form by the morning of Monday, May 25.

If you have questions, please contact the co-facilitators of the summer FWW, Nate Holdren (nate.holdren@drake.edu) and En Li (en.li@drake.edu).
