Give Your Faculty a Month of Writing Motivation

Help your faculty authors accomplish their academic writing goals by focusing on two areas of academic writing that many authors tend to struggle with - isolation and accountability – with TAA’s new Month of Motivation program. Sessions will be held each year in February, April, July, September, and November. 

To combat the challenges associated with personal goal setting and accountability felt by many academic authors, we have developed a month-long motivational email series that begins with a personal pledge for faculty to meet their writing goals. Faculty simply share with us their goals, anticipated challenges, and what TAA can do to help them succeed, and we’ll help move them forward with daily email messages containing motivation, encouragement, and resources to advance their writing efforts all month long.

Participants will also receive a time tracking template, a writing journal, and the opportunity to participate in three 30-minute Virtual Writing Accountability Sessions each week. During these sessions, they’ll connect by video, share what they plan to work on during the session, write as a group for 30 minutes, and then share their next steps.

Commit to your faculty members' success by letting TAA help them overcome the isolation and accountability issues textbook and academic authors often face and get their writing projects done!

Here's what participant Julie Combs said about her experience with the program: 
"After so many ups and downs over the past year, the Month of Motivation program helped me focus again on writing projects and establishing a consistent writing practice. Even though I am generally productive, I find the group writing sessions to be extremely helpful. I put the appointments on my calendar and did my best to show up. I noticed that my motivation increased after each session and I wanted to keep writing. I looked forward to the 3 times a week sessions. Great service, TAA!"
