Early Career Faculty are invited to join us for a virtual writing retreat. There's no better feeling going into a semester break than the one you get when you can check a writing project off of your to-do list!

We'll meet for four days to make some major headway on the scholarly project(s) of your choice. We'll set goals, examine time management strategies, consider accountability frameworks, and of course, WRITE, WRITE, WRITE! Past participants have used the retreat to complete manuscript revisions, begin outlining a new project, finish a chapter, progress on dissertations, and more.

Each day will start with check-ins, goal-setting, and sharing writing/time management strategies via Zoom. Then, we'll break off into groups and work according to your individual preference--either in breakout rooms (with or without cameras), in the main room (with or without cameras), or off of Zoom altogether. We'll have periodic check-ins for accountability and to celebrate progress.

You do not need to be available for all retreat hours/days to participate. Once you register, we'll contact you with more information. So, come join us to get some writing off of your plate!

Please note that you do not need to register for all days—that's just a funky feature of the Workshop Scheduler. Registering for one gets you access to the full retreat.
