This interdisciplinary faculty writing retreat is designed to:
- Create a motivated and positive environment that fosters excellent work
- Encourage productivity through accountability and camaraderie
- Help you accomplish a writing project this summer
The retreat includes five days of committed writing time, mini-sessions on removing productivity challenges and fostering good writing habits, discussions on writing style, grammar, and more.
The retreat is open to anyone working on a scholarly writing project. The goal is for each participant to arrive with a work in progress and leave with a manuscript prepared for submission, but you are welcome to bring writing project at any stage.
