The Write Track
Looking for a peer support community to keep your writing moving forward?
Ever feel like your writing goals jump off the track? Any chance that when things get busy and work piles up, the first thing to go is your writing? Or perhaps you have developed strong writing habits and want to make sure you STAY on track?
The Write Track initiative offers a buffet of options--workshops, writing retreats, regular group writing activities-- designed to support faculty scholarship and writing goals. No matter what task you need to complete to move your writing along, the Write Track offers you opportunities to keep that writing train moving!

NCFDD Writing Challenges
14-day writing challenges with NCFDD occur several times each year. Sign into your free NCFDD (VCU membership) and get registered for the challenge. We will write 30 minutes per day to get our daily writing habit in place. Our goal is to get as many VCU faculty as possible to participate together in each challenge.
How about a retreat from emails, grading, committees, and life to focus on your writing goals? You came to the "Write" place! Visit the Writing Retreat page for all of the latest information on upcoming retreats.
Our writing group Just Write provides a chance to come together to write (in silence) with other colleagues. Just Write takes place on a variety of days and times. Just drop in whenever you like. Visit the Just Write page for details.
