Workshops are run by the FAWN Fellows each semester and include a variety of themes to help you attain your writing goals.

Fall 2021 Workshops

Setting up for Scholarship Success
Friday, September 17, 2021, 1:00 - 2:30 pm | online

You probably know exactly what you need to accomplish in terms of your scholarship this semester.  This workshop will help you get it done. This is an active workshop—the goal is for you to have a clear plan of what you will do each day to move your scholarship forward. We will help you schedule and commit to writing time, help you set up your support network, and provide advice about how to get back on the scholarship wagon should you falter.

The Calculus of ‘What Counts’?
Friday, October 29, 2021, 3:30 - 5:00 pm | online

It can be hard to determine your research and writing goals in the years leading to tenure and/or promotion.  We are plagued by the eternal question (panic?) of “what counts.”  While FAWN cannot answer those questions for you (in general, the answers are “peer-reviewed” and “it depends”), we can put you on the path to figuring out what might count for you: whom to ask, where to find the answers, how to think about your work in light of your tenure/promotion goals. Come with your current CV, your Program Standards, and most recent tenure narrative ready to interactively negotiate these questions.
