NCFDD May Newsletter
How to Embrace Rejection and Publish More

A Note from the NCFDD Team

This spring has been a big growth spurt for us at NCFDD! We’ve welcomed 8 new universities as Institutional Members and our Workshop Facilitators have traveled to 10 campuses to present 12 NCFDD workshops face-to-face with faculty. And this month, we have our busiest month for campus workshops ever. We'll be traveling to 8 campuses to give 10 workshops. We also hosted our biggest 14-Day Writing Challenge that supported more than 2,800 academic writers in experimenting with developing a daily writing practice, and we just completed our most successful Faculty Bootcamp ever (95% of participants increased their productivity as a result of the program).

We're carrying that momentum into the summer with some exciting training opportunities this month!

By popular demand, Professor Rachel McLaren (University of Iowa) will teach an open webinar for everyone to jump-start their summer of productivity: Every Summer Needs A Plan. We're kicking off our summer multi-week courses with How to Craft and Submit a Winning Book Proposal in 4 Weeks, taught by Professor Badia Legardy (Loyola University, Chicago). And our feature article previews this month's guest expert webinar with Kim Liao on Embracing Rejection: De-Stigmatizing Submissions and Purifying Your Writing Process.

Additionally, if you missed the registration for the summer session of our Faculty Success Program, you can sign up on the Waiting List. Sometimes we need a few people at the last minute to round out our small groups, so there's a chance you may get a spot.

We are so excited about all of the resources we have planned for you this summer, and we hope you'll find exactly what you need to boost your productivity!
