Yes, a nourishing and productive summer is possible with the right tools, structure, and support.
A 2-week writing sprint at the beginning of the summer with everything you need to
While discovering how to...
Get more writing done in 2 weeks than in 2 months on your own
in an inclusive community of faculty that support each other.
Pave your way to writing brilliance knowing EXACTLY where to put your precious energy and attention for maximum progress.
Reduce stress, release perfectionism, and quiet your inner critic with real-time group coaching during each session.
And all you need to see BIG results is show up to the daily writing sessions with your work.
That's it. You even get weekends off.
Okay, okay, you do need to do pre- and post-session exercises. But they only take 10 minutes. Pinky swear.
Registration ends May 5th at 5 pm ET.
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
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.
A summer of writing wins and rest is within your reach with SUBMIT.
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.
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.
I see you. And I understand the need for spaces where you can show up just as you are.
WellAcademic is that space. Women of color faculty make up the majority of our community and our previous programs (e.g., Focus Fridays, Makeover, and Well-Prepared). I have no reason to believe that won't be the case for SUBMIT.
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.
I'm here for you. Just send me a message and let me know how I can help. I typically respond in one business day.
