Work with Me

Consultations, coaching, workshops, and retreats about writing, about teaching, and about balancing the two. Please contact me via email: msdufour AT

Writing Retreats for Faculty and Graduate Students
I love working with faculty writers. I help you to connect with your work and to make progress at all stages of the writing process. I am an experienced facilitator of writing retreats and workshops for faculty and graduate students across the curriculum. I emphasize building a sustainable writing practice that will serve you throughout your career.

I co-facilitate an annual summer Scholarly Writing Retreat at Duke University with my colleague Jennifer Ahern-Dodson. Details and registration here:

Teaching with TIME in Mind
You can manage your teaching time and enhance student learning. I offer full day and half day workshops that guide participants through my system for managing your teaching time. I emphasize practical methods for course design, assignment design, feedback, and assessment.
