Do you feel distracted and need to focus on your projects? Please join us for a virtual faculty writing retreat on November 19 from 10:00 a.m. ET to 2:00 p.m. ET.

The writing retreats provide faculty with a space to devote uninterrupted time to work on a personal project of their choosing (i.e., grant proposals, manuscript submissions, conference submissions, etc.), while sharing resources and tips to promote success.  

We all have heavy workloads and this virtual space will provide a collaborative community to support your scholarship. Each session will run four hours with short check-ins to encourage you to continue writing or receive feedback from your peers. You will need to come prepared to the session with:   

  • All materials that you will need to work on the selected writing task

  • Remove all distractions (turn off notifications)
