The Writing Accountability Program!
A partnership between the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs and the University Writing Program & Writing Center, the Writing Accountability Program offers small, facilitated groups that are designed to help faculty develop sustainable writing practices and move forward in their research, service, and pedagogical goals.
Writing Accountability Groups (WAG) are weekly sessions structured around an NCFDD curriculum designed to foster faculty well-being and sustainable productivity. WAGs consist of small groups of 3-5 faculty and a trained facilitator and focus on the process of writing. Sessions include both discussion and structured writing time, and participants produce an artifact by quarter’s end (to include manuscripts, strategic plans, grant proposals, promotion materials, etc.). WAG sessions meet once a week for 90 minutes, starting the first week of the quarter.
Write-in-Place (WiP) groups -- a lower commitment alternative (or complement) to WAGs -- are weekly sessions where faculty gather (either in person or via Zoom) and write alongside colleagues from across campus. WiP sessions offer minimal facilitation and provide faculty with the opportunity to work on their own projects.
If you are interested in joining a WAG and/or a WiP, please complete this registration survey no later than Friday, August 26, 2022.
For questions about these programs, please contact Megan Kelly, Writing Accountability Program Coordinator (email@example.com).
