Call for Participation

Facilitated by Dr. Shrinidhi Subramaniam
Join us for the Writing Café Mondays, 12:00-1:00 pm in Hybrid mode, starting Monday, February 20th!

What is the Writing Café?

The Writing Café will be a hybrid space (alternate in-person and online sessions) for faculty to dedicate time to writing their research, scholarship, and creative activities (RSCA). The Writing Café will also be a space for faculty to come together in support of each other’s RSCA pursuits. Each session, faculty will check in about their writing goals for the week; engage in weekly planning; and solicit feedback, advice, and encouragement from each other. The next 50 minutes will consist of two, 20-minute writing pomodoros with a 5-min break between them and a 5-min check-in at the end. Faculty can work on writing manuscripts for publication, preparing research talks, writing grant applications, working on creative projects, or engaging in other scholarly pursuits. Please feel free to join us whenever you are able.
