2016-2017

Workshop 1: Writing Productivity

Monday. September 12, 2016 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
CMG 246 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 308
A researcher at New Mexico State University found this formula for writing productivity: 30 minutes a day for .5 days a week + 180 pages of revised writing annually. Writing productivity come down to structure and accountability. At the beginning of the academic year, let’s talk about both.

Workshop 2: Co-Authoring

Monday, October 10, 2016 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
CMG 246 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 320
Dr. Steven Lloyd (Department of Psychological Science) and Dr. Ryan Shanks (Department of Biology) will join us to talk about co-authoring: how and why. We will leave the workshop with a stronger sense of the role co-authoring – even the non-writing co-author – can play in our discipline and our scholarship.

Workshop 3: Cultivating a Journal Article from Your Work

Monday, November 14, 2016 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
CMG 246 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 308
We do a lot of stuff: teach classes, sit on committees, browse through recent journals in our field. And we have a lot of our own text on our computers and in file folders: a dissertation, thesis, seminar papers from grad school, lecture notes, conference talks. In this workshop, we give concrete advice for carving our journal article from the mountain of professional life. Writing a journal article doesn’t need to start from scratch. Most of what you need, you already have.

Workshop 4: Copyright for Authors

Monday, January 30, 2017 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
BLU 107 | CMG 262 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 564
Few things are as opaque but vitally important than intellectual property – especially in the increasing digital age in which we live, teach, and write. The Framers of the Constitution granted the Congress the ability to secure “for Authors and inventors the exclusive Right to their Respective Writings and Discoveries.” Terri Bell, Sr. Library Assistant/ Copyright Compliance, will join us to consider what you need to know about the intellectual property for your writing and what “Writings and Discoveries” mean for your field.

Workshop 5: Writing and Revising

Monday, February 13, 2017 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
BLU 103 | CMG 246 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 308
When preparing a manuscript for publication, we are faced with at least two kinds of revision: inward and outward. In other words, some of our revision is spurred by our reading closely and making our own changes. Other kinds of revision are spurred by reader feedback. Both are tough reflective activities but are central to scholarly productivity.

Workshop 6: Creating Writing Groups

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 | 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
BLU 107 | CMG 262 | DAH Hansford 312 | GVL Dunlap-Mathis 137 | OCN 564
Dr. Diana Edelman (Department of English) will join us to talk about the faculty writing group she started and leads on the Gainesville campus. WriteIn member meet weekly to write, share drafts, drink coffee, and experience the joys and frustrations of being a scholarly writer. Start thinking of writing groups that work for you.
