Write Now Academy

Under the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership and Write@UNG initiative led by Dr. Michael Rifenburg, the Write Now Academy will offer participants a shared community in which to cultivate, draft, and submit an academic article. Through monthly in-person meetings and weekly digital updates, participants will work through Wendy Belcher's Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks to structure their academic writing and publishing. In-person meetings will be held on the Dahlonega, Gainesville, and Oconee campuses. Faculty and academic staff from all campuses are welcome to attend on any of these three locations.

Write Now Academy participants will:

  • Gain community and support for developing, drafting, and submitting an academic article
  • Attend monthly in-person meetings to discuss progress and offer support to group members
  • Develop a clearly articulated writing plan
  • Research and identify potential publication outlets
  • Structure an effective literature review
  • Revise for sentence-level clarity with the Belcher diagnostic method
  • Learn how to respond to editorial feedback

Email any questions to the Write Now Academy director, Michael Rifenburg.
