Spring 2024 Theme: Second Book Writers

The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) is launch a unique cohort of scholars in Spring 2024. The theme for this cohort is "The Second Book." Scholars will receive community and writing support as they begin, continue to work on, or finish their second book project. 

Scholars will engage with a semester-long series of interactive writing workshops and peer feedback sessions. The training, feedback, and accountability will support OFD Scholars as they make significant progress on their book while balancing other work and personal commitments. 

Meeting details: Over the Spring 2024, Scholars will meet together from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. every other Thursday starting February 1st through May 9th (8 total sessions). Meetings will be held in the OFD Conference Room, 1902 W.E.B. Du Bois Library. Additional small-group meetings may be added at the Scholars' discretion.
