Writing in Community Challenge for Junior Faculty

Kick Off Your Semester Write: Writing in Community Challenge for Junior Faculty

Writing hours return in Fall 2022, with a special focus on supporting Miami’s junior faculty (assistant professors and assistant TCPLs). We are challenging you to set aside six Friday mornings between September 9 and October 21, in-person in 100 King Library or online via Zoom, from 9-11, to write and create a writing community with other junior faculty. Howe Writing Center graduate consultants will open each writing session by asking participants to set their intentions for the day, and end by asking them to set writing goals for the following week. Writing consultants and librarians will also be available to answer writers’ questions, provide guidance, and/or offer feedback on drafts.

RSVP is required; you will be added to a Google calendar event that contains both the Zoom link and in-person location.

Dates for the challenge are:

  • Friday, September 9 from 9-11
  • Friday, September 16 from 9-11
  • Friday, September 23 from 9-11
  • Friday, September 30 from 9-11
  • NO HOURS Friday October 7: Fall Break
  • Friday, October 14 from 9-11
  • Friday, October 21 from 9-11

Participants who attend at least 4 out of 6 sessions will complete the challenge and receive a bound notebook.
