NCFDD October Newsletter
Do You Have a Publishing Pipeline?


A Note from Kerry Ann


The NCFDD team is on the move in the new academic year! So far our campus facilitators have taught workshops at Bowling Green State University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Iowa State University, the University at Buffalo, and the University of the Pacific. There’s nothing quite like the energy of gathering our virtual community together face-to-face for an on-campus workshop (the picture below is from our “Solo Success” workshop at Iowa State University).


Certified Workshop Facilitator Joy Gayles, PhD at Iowa State University


In addition to expanding the possibilities for you to host a workshop on your campus this year, our software development team has started an important project to improve your experience at Specifically, we’re working to add features that you want, remove features that you don’t use, and simplify the path for you to get what you need. Please take 5 minutes to share your ideas, comments, and criticisms with us here.

This month, we’ve got some awesome resources to support your productivity:

I’m wishing you a happy, healthy, and productive October and I hope that our resources will support you in a way that is helpful this month!
