2021-2022 Academic Year Faculty Writing Support

We are so impressed with the faculty research, scholarship, and creative accomplishments at Salem State University. To further the accomplishments of the faculty, and to respond to requests and feedback we have received from faculty, we offer the following ways to write, collaborate, and provide and receive helpful interventions from one another.

The Writing Center and the Center for Research and Creative Activities are pleased to co-sponsor a full year of programming to support faculty in achieving their writing goals. We have designed a variety of opportunities among which you can select those that will best help you achieve your individual goals:

Just Write

  • Year-long
  • Beginning September 28 and meeting every Tuesday, 12-1 pm.
  • Join this group if you want to make a commitment to a low-key, weekly writing session that will allow you to keep your projects on track.
  • Begins on Zoom, but we hope to switch to simultaneous virtual and in-person options eventually.
  • To participate, simply email with "Just Write" in the subject line, and we will send you the Zoom link for the year.

Finish It This Academic Year

  • Year-long accountability workshop open to eight faculty who make a commitment to complete a scholarly writing project within this time frame.
  • Faculty apply to participate, providing a brief description of the project they hope to complete and receive a stipend of $300 upon completion of the workshop. Structured writing sessions and facilitated support.
  • Participants will also receive five hours of editorial support for the completed project. Starting October 6 and ending April 13, in the spirit of Wendy Laura Belcher’s work about writing an article in 12 weeks, these sessions are offered every two weeks, on Wednesday, from 11:30 am-12:30 pm. Begins on Zoom, may include in-person option later.
  • Applications are due Monday, September 27 by midnight. To participate, complete the attached form in Polaris and email to with "Finish It" in the subject line.
