You may have seen the announcement in the Research Update about the Dean's Office's intent to develop summer writing groups.
The writing groups can be designed to help you in any project you desire, for example: writing book chapters; journal papers; or applications for fellowships and grants. These would provide an ideal way to help you power through that chapter, or approach the drafting of your NSF CAREER grant in a more structured way. The idea is to start with a six-week commitment (unless the grant deadline is earlier :-)), and you are free to agree as a group to extend the group beyond that period, if you are finding it helpful. This is our first time trying such a thing so we would welcome your participation and feedback as to how we can make the process better.
In order to register your interest, please fill out the google form by Wednesday, July 15th and we will try to match you with a small group (3-4) of faculty with similar aims and needs. There are three types of groups we came across in researching the model and they are explained at the start of the form. The group will typically meet once per week, but you are free to determine as a group whether you want to meet more or less frequently than that, how long each meeting will last, and which online platform you will use to meet.
