Spring Semester Kick Off: Faculty Writing Retreat

Wednesday, January 09 2013 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Kick off your spring semester work by attending the Faculty Writing Retreat. Space is limited; please register!

The retreat is simple: we provide a comfortable space, healthy snacks, beverages, and lunch, and no distractions so that you can spend a day working on a writing project. Participants will be able to have a consultation with a librarian or a writing specialist if desired, but mostly, participants will work in peace and quiet.

At lunch, we will offer a very brief program on different aspects of writing productively and efficiently; there will also be time to stretch and get outdoors.

This retreat is sponsored by the Writing in the Disciplines Program, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and Bailey/Howe Library.

The week following this retreat, a regular faculty writing group will begin meeting weekly, offering a shorter period of quiet writing time with the support of colleagues. Participants who are interested in forming a writing group that would read each other's work can let us know and we will help you network.
