Taylor Center: October Writing Challenge

10.05.2020 | 8:00 am - 10.30.2020 | 5:00 pm

Scholars, faculty, graduate students, community leaders, and other writers interested in the field of social innovation, changemaking, social justice, social impact, among other related subjects are invited to join this 4-week writing challenge.

Where: This is a virtual writing challenge so you can join us from anywhere.

Why: To connect with other writers in the field of social innovation, changemaking, and social impact. Also, hopefully, to help stay motivated and achieve your writing goals, whether it is preparing for a conference, finishing your paper submission, or updating a syllabus.


1) Create your own individual writing plan:

– set goals (e.g., finish a paper for an upcoming conference; upgrade your syllabi by incorporating readings written by underrepresented scholars in your field; etc.)

– dedicate time each week (e.g., regular times – Mon/Wed/Fri 9am to noon; or, dedicate 12 hours a week to writing, no matter when it happens)

– as always, make it work for YOU!

2) ZOOM check-ins schedule:

October 5th, noon-12:30pm (CST): welcome session – the first day to share what we plan to write and meet each other

October 9th, 16th, 23rd, 3:30-4pm (CST): optional end-of-week motivational and semi-social check-ins on Friday

October 30th – noon-12:30pm (CST): end of challenge celebration!

Join to see who is researching what topics, discuss any challenges/share successes, exchange ideas.

While these ZOOM calls are optional, we hope that everyone will join us for the first check-in session and the last check-in that will be a celebration of our accomplishments!

ZOOM link will be sent prior to October 5th.
