Faculty Writing Retreats and Workshops

Faculty writing retreats will help you meet your writing goals for the year. Begin new articles, revise and resubmit, polish your book proposal, or complete your last edits.

For Spring 2021, we are continuing our Virtual Writing Retreats. Each month, we will have a two day long writing retreat Zoom rooms. Drop in and out as you please and work together virtually for as long as you like. Each Zoom link will be good for both days of each month’s retreat. We will schedule any workshops or special activities during the same Zoom meetings.

Writing Accountability Groups

For the 2020-2021 Academic Year, the FCTL has facilitated the formation of Writing Accountability Groups (WAGs). Faculty belonging to this program support each other’s productivity in small groups that check in to update each other on goals and progress. Our existing groups are organized by related disciplines and associated publication models. If you are interested in being placed with an existing group, forming a new group, or registering your existing writing group with us, please email facultywriting@missouristate.edu.
