Facilitated by Wendy Varner, Director of Faculty Development

This June, OFD is holding weekly Writing Wednesday sessions to create support and connection and spur productivity as you begin your summer writing routine. These two-hour virtual writing sessions offer dedicated time and facilitated support for faculty to focus on scholarly writing in the company of colleagues.

You will benefit from writing alongside other faculty from all disciplines and career stages and the accountability of checking in on progress.   At each session we will set writing goals, ask questions, share accomplishments, and offer advice and encouragement. The sessions will begin with a small group 15-minute check-in, with each participant introducing themselves, their writing project, and specific goals for the session. For the next 90 minutes, faculty will write together in their own protected environment. In the final 15 minutes, participants will rejoin their small group to discuss their progress, challenges, and to set writing goals.  

Faculty may participate in any or all of the Writing Wednesday sessions that are offered.  We ask that participants commit to the full 2 hours of each session.
