MONTH-LONG PACKAGE

This is a great option for faculty writers who have identified a specific upcoming deadline and who wish to finish their project with greater ease (even before deadline).

Selecting a month of writing accountability can help you be more realistic about your schedule and more strategic about when you will write a lot--even during the "busyness" of a semester.

When submitting your Faculty Writing Productivity Application below, simply, tell us your start-date and end-date.

FALL SEMESTER (15 Weeks)

Starts AUG 27   Ends DEC 14

A good option for writers who have multiple projects or one large writing project to complete by winter break.

If you are finding this option in September or October ...feel free to sign up for the remaining weeks. No time like the present to build your semester's writing momentum!

SUMMER 2019 PACKAGE

The summer productivity package requires you to set project start date and end dates--but it also includes opt-out weeks when you may opt-out of writing for travel, fieldwork, or naps in the sun.

Summer is when faculty often plan to write the most. Summer seems so expansive, generous, and comforting in May, but less so by August. For, summer is also a time when we plan to do everything else we didn't do during the semester--family vacation, fieldwork, hiking in the Rockies, naps in the sunshine. The list of what competes with our writing time is vast.

WHAT FACULTY PARTICIPANTS SAY...

"Had too numerous to count unfinished projects and had lost my way about how to chip off a little to make any progress against this mountain.  Now I have the tools to begin a new exciting phase of my life."

"I love the periodic emails sent by CSU Writes! I intend to revisit them…"

"I was clueless—Now I have the tools needed to begin to complete my writing projects."
