April 18th: Women Writers in Academe Workshop

CSU Writes, created by CSU faculty member Dr. Kristina Quynn, is hosting a workshop that creates space for women faculty to discuss the challenges they face in finding time to write.

Women Writers in Academe- Make the Most of Your time
Tuesday, April 18th, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Lory Student Center Room 372-376

Academic reputations and careers in most fields are built on the writing academics do, whether for publication or funding. Still women in most fields publish fewer articles than their male peers (largely because women do not submit as much work). Studies on gender and writing productivity recognize women academics face gender-specific challenges in maintaining a regular and productive writing schedule. Laura Vanderkam, however, claims that professional women have more time than they think. We will explore some of Vanderkam’s useful ideas and strategies and see how the might enhance our own work-a-day and write-a-day lives at CSU.

CSU Writes provides Colorado State University faculty and graduate students with support as they write for publication, proposal submission, and/or degree completion. Comprised of two branches–FACULTY Writes & GRAD Writes–it offers faculty and graduate student multiple ways to participate in a burgeoning academic writing community on campus: workshops, writing groups, intensive writing retreats, guest speaker presentations, “show up & write” sessions, and more.
