"I began the program with a half-written essay draft and left it with a full draft including citations. I feel relieved and am able to carve out some rest and relaxation during my summer break because of the work I put in during SUBMIT."

"I started a project in Focus Fridays, and SUBMIT got me across the finish line. The 30 minutes before our writing sessions involved research informed, practical advice from Roxanne that forced me to rethink patterns of behavior that got me stuck in a rut. I highly recommend Focus Fridays, and SUBMIT for those who want a break through."

Evelyn Simien, PhD
Professor, Univeristy of Connecticut

Hi! I'm Roxanne, your coach!

Licensed Psychologist. Faculty Coach. Full Professor. 

I've coached hundreds of faculty in the last 10+ years toward writing success. These experiences, along with my own, have taught me one thing about summer writing...

It's immensely hard - hard to start, hard to maintain, hard to find space for among travel, caregiving, and other demands like summer teaching and administrative work.

All this adds tons and tons of stress to what should be a replenishing time. Not good!

That's why I've created a better summer experience for faculty - one where you're able to get your writing done upfront, so you can have the long, leisurely break your mind, body, and spirit desperately need.

Schedule: May 12 - May 26

Daily writing sessions: Weekdays 12:00 to 2:30 pm ET, starting May 15

Bonus retreat: 12:00 to 2:30 pm ET, Friday, May 12

Don't start another fall semester behind and depleted from a summer that wasn't as productive or restful as you'd hoped.

A summer of writing wins and rest is within your reach with SUBMIT.

"The best thing about SUBMIT is not just the time and strategies to sit down and write, it's that the program reframes writing in a way that also makes it feel good to write..."

Associate Professor, University of Michigan

Quick message from me before you go.

Correction: In the video I said SUBMIT is in the first 2 weeks of May. It's actually May 12 to May 26.

Need some peace of mind?

I’m so confident SUBMIT will work for you that I back up your investment with a 7-day unconditional money back guarantee.

It works like this - if you're not 100% satisfied with your results after the first week of the program, email me for a full refund. No questions asked.

That gives you a 7-day no risk period to check out the program, experience the retreat + sessions, and connect with the community.

"The community is caring, generous, and super smart. I'm so grateful to be a part of this!"

Associate Professor, Simon Fraser University

Frequently Asked Questions

I see you. And I understand the need for spaces where you can show up just as you are.

WellAcademic is that space. As with our other programs (e.g., Focus Fridays, Makeover, and Well-Prepared), Women of color faculty make up a large proportion of our SUBMIT community.

Also, I'm a woman of color (Black, Asian, & White) whose work centers positionality, power, and privilege, which is evident in my coaching and scholarship.

SUBMIT is most applicable to faculty and post-docs.

That said, others who think they would benefit from the program are welcome.

Absolutely! I know it's counterintuitive, but intense focus for short bursts with breaks in between - how SUBMIT is set up - results in greater progress than long stretches of distracted work.

Plus, writing daily builds momentum, which means you start quicker and finish faster compared to working the same hours over a longer time period.

SUBMIT also has other factors shown to improve motivation and performance such as accountability, coaching, a fun atmosphere, and social support.

I hear you. I'm a closet introvert, so I would never set something up that's awkward for folx like you and me.

That's why the check-ins are short, about 5 minutes, with just 3-4 participants. I also provide EXACTLY what you need to share.

This means there's no time to get nervous and no one is searching for conversation fillers. Phew!

No. What makes SUBMIT special is that it's live. You can't replicate the real-time accountability and support in a recording. 

Yes. Faculty from a variety of ranks participate in WellAcademic's writing communities. In fact, 46% of our last Focus Fridays cohort were Associate Professors.

Nope. I get that you're really busy. That's why almost all work happens in our daily sessions. You'll need just 10 minutes for the prep and reflection exercises. That's it.
