14 Day Writing Challenge – Register Today!

National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) has a Spring 2020 14-Day Writing Challenge, March 23rd – April 5th 2020. Registration for the Writing Challenge closes on March 19th. In order to register for this free opportunity, you will need to claim your free NCFDD membership using your UF credentials. If you have already joined the NCFDD, you will simply need to login to your account and register for the writing challenge (look in the “Resources” drop-down menu).

What is the 14-Day Writing Challenge?

The 14-Day Challenge is an opportunity for you to experiment with daily writing, online community, and supportive accountability. It’s very simple:

  1. You commit to write every day for at least 30 minutes.

  2. At the beginning of your writing time, you login to our online community, start the timer, complete your writing, and post your progress at the end.

  3. You take 5 minutes to support other writers in your group by commenting on their progress.

This is NOT for you if: 1) you don’t want to post your progress on a daily basis and/or 2) you don’t want to interact with other people.
