Kick off Your Spring Writing in a Writing Accountability Group

The CAE welcomes all faculty and staff to join a writing accountability group. These small groups meet regularly throughout the semester to support each other’s writing through discussing ideas and drafts, reporting on progress, and holding each other accountable. Each group has the freedom to establish their process, needs and meeting frequency. If you are interested in being matched up with your colleagues, please email us at
The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) also offers a 14-Day Writing challenge. As described on their website, “ The challenge is simple: write for at least 30 minutes every day, Monday through Friday, for two weeks. This focused 14-day program will enable you to experience the skills and habits that lead to explosive writing productivity. It includes group accountability, coaching and access to our WriteNow custom software platform.” Visit to register. The writing challenge is free to all NCFDD members. Fairfield faculty and staff can sign up for free NCFDD memberships on their website:
