For the last couple of years, the Online Presence and Public Scholarship Fellows program has aided scholars from across MSU in developing and managing their presence on the Internet. This semester, we are offering an additional seven-week program focused specifically on helping participants develop or expand a blogging practice, exploring ways that public writing can help further scholarly goals, and exploring workflows and practices for establishing a regular writing and publishing schedule.

The workshop will be held on Tuesdays, 12:00-1:00 p.m., from February 12th through March 26th (in lieu of meeting during Spring Break, participants will be encouraged to work on their own on March 5th). It will meet in the Digital Scholarship Lab on the second floor of the MSU Main Library.

Workshop sessions will alternate between topical discussions and hands on practice, with a focus on helping participants get started blogging, explore their voices as bloggers, think about what makes a blog post good, and create connections to other academic bloggers. The workshop will be co-facilitated by Kathleen Fitzpatrick and Burton Bargerstock, who will be joined by guest bloggers.

To apply, please fill out the form at the link above. Applicants are asked to commit to attending all six face-to-face sessions of the workshop.

Application deadline: February 8, 2019.
