Summer Writing Academy

May 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Start Your Summer “Write!”
We invite faculty and teaching staff to attend a three-day writing academy presented on Zoom. Dr. Christine Tulley, Professor of English and Director of the Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Writing at the University of Findlay, Dr. Anne Ellen Geller, Professor of English at St. John’s University, and Dr. Marguerite “Peggy” Brickman, a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Professor of Plant Biology at the University of Georgia, will offer insight and guidance on faculty/staff writing habits and moving projects forward. The academy will offer speaker presentations, time for independent writing, and one-on-one flash consultations with the speakers. More information. Register.

Wednesday’s Speaker: Dr. Anne Ellen Geller
Wednesday’s Topic: Completing Your Project
Wednesday’s Presentation:
Finding The Next Thing I Need to Do…and Then the Next Thing After That and Then…
We’ll reflect on where your project was when you began these three days, where it is now, and what the next things are that you need to keep going. We’ll ask: What might keep you from completing this project and what would help you finish it?
