Publish and Flourish

Want to publish scholarly papers, textbooks, popular articles or online materials and connect with others that do also?

This monthly Faculty Writing Club is for you.

The Club is hosted by Louis Falk and Betsy Price to provide assistance to begin and maintain your scholarly writing activities.

Faculty writing clubs at other universities have assisted faculty to set scholarship goals, brainstorm how to overcome obstacles, provide editing, and relay best practices for how to work with publishers to get published.

Bring a draft abstract, notes you have developed on supporting evidence, and a literature review. At the end of the each meeting you will have fine tuned your abstract, learned best practices on how to organize your work, and effectively incorporated references.

Who should attend: This workshop is for veterans as well as new faculty, graduate students, and staff writing scholarly works.
