Summer Writing Group for Researchers

March 19, 2018

Join the Duke Office of Research Initiatives for the Inaugural Summer Writing Group for Researchers at Duke

This program is hosted in partnership with Duke Faculty Write (an initiative of the Thompson Writing Program), the Office of Campus Research Development, and the Office for Faculty Advancement.

The program brings together research faculty from across Duke and assembles them into self-directed writing groups.  All research faculty are welcome to take part, regardless of discipline and regardless of writing project. Seats are limited (50) and registration is required.

What is involved in the program?

  • Complete the intake form (as part of registration below) to tell us about your writing project(s) and writing group preferences.
  • Attend a 2-hour orientation to the program, that includes information about how the writing groups will function, and an opportunity to meet with the faculty members that were assigned into groups based on their preferences. Orientation will be held, over a free lunch, on May 16th from 11:00 - 1:00 in Perkins 217.
  • Work with your assigned group to meet 5+ times during the summer. Schedules and frequency are determined by the writing groups themselves.  During these meetings, the group leader will share resources that may help you with your writing. Our office can help with scheduling space and paying for some refreshments.
  • Complete pre- and post- program evaluations

To get started, complete the registration form by April 30.
