Research Accountability Groups

14-Day Writing Challenge

The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) will host an 14-day writing challenge from October 19 – November 1, 2020.

From the NCFDD website:

The 14-Day Challenge is an opportunity for you to experiment with daily writing, online community, and supportive accountability. It’s very simple:

  1. You commit to write every day for at least 30 minutes.
  2. At the beginning of your writing time, you login to our online community, start the timer, complete your writing, and post your progress at the end.
  3. You take five minutes to support other writers in your group by commenting on their progress.

This is NOT for you if: (1) you don’t want to post your progress on a daily basis and/or (2) you don’t want to interact with other people.

To participate, you must first activate your NCFDD membership (FREE for Purdue faculty), then register to participate. Registration closes on October 14, 2020.


Writing Retreats

The Center for Faculty Excellence regularly hosts writing retreats that are open to all research-active faculty who wish to have uninterrupted time to work on their research.  Details of upcoming writing retreats will be posted here when they are available.
