In a few hours, I will lead the final workshop of AY 2016-2017 under the newly launched Write@UNG intiative. Supported by UNG’s Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership and the Office of Research, Economic Development, and Community Engagement, the I led six workshops to encourage and support faculty research and writing.
I operate this initiative through three central goals:
This is what we do when we write, when we write with others, and when we write for others and ourselves.
Today’s workshop focuses on the importance of writing groups–how to sustain them, how to support them (financially), and why they are helpful.
Thanks to my colleague, Dr. Diana Edelman, for joining me. She helped start the writing group WriteIN, which meets every Friday on the Gainesville campus from 1-5. I joined the group a couple of years past. We write, talk, and listen to Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” to end our time together.
