Writing Your Journal Article: A Bootcamp for Faculty


February 1 – March 8, 2022
Individual Dates: Feb 1, 8, 22, March 1, 8, 2022

Improve your writing productivity and effectiveness in just 6 weeks.


Publishing your research is a foundational part of your career trajectory. With so much riding on your research efforts, it's important to be as effective and productive as possible in your writing practice.

Join us online for this 6-week bootcamp, designed to build your skills and confidence in writing, so that you can get published in a timely manner. Each session will provide tips and strategies to help you develop as a writer by focusing on both the content and quality of your journal article, as well as the process and habits you need to produce your manuscript. During this bootcamp, you’ll explore how to:

  • Select your journal and understand your audience,
  • Identify and organize your ideas into an argument,
  • Strategize your approach to reviewing literature,
  • Create a consistent and personalized writing practice, and
  • Develop your authoritative voice as an expert in your discipline.

This bootcamp will not simply teach you about writing strategies, it also invites you to practice those strategies first-hand through short writing and reflective exercises during each session. Since writing can be isolating and difficult to prioritize, this bootcamp also offers small group discussions and peer writing partners to provide you with the necessary accountability and social connections needed to advance your writing project.


A Highly Personalized Experience

In addition to the six live online sessions, this bootcamp offers one individual 45-minute consultation with the facilitator and expert writing coach to help you:

  • Grow awareness around and quiet your personal writing challenges
  • Strategize writing practices and products that are personalized to your manuscript and your field
  • Discuss issues that may arise with co-authors
  • Provide individualized feedback on your writing.
  • Develop the central argument(s) of your manuscript

To preserve the intimate and interactive nature of this training, the bootcamp is limited to 24 participants. Register early to reserve your spot!


What You Will Get

  • Six live online, weekly sessions. This schedule helps build and sustain momentum in your writing practice. Each session is facilitated by our expert instructor and writing coach to help you with the two dimensions of writing journal articles: content and process.
  • Community and accountability through writing partners and small group discussions.
  • A personalized, 45-minute consultation session: You will have the opportunity to sign up for a 1:1 session with the facilitator to address questions and needs specific to your discipline, writing project, or personal writing challenges.

Who Should Attend

This bootcamp is designed for researchers in any stage of their career who seek to: demystify the process of journal article writing, publish in areas of study that are new to them, and/or need accountability and structure to reach their publication goals.

February 1, 2022 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

February 8, 2022 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

February 15, 2022 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET
