September 17 Virtual Writing Retreat

Do you feel distracted and need to focus on your projects? Please join us for a virtual writing retreat on September 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET. PAEA Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer Monica Miles, PhD, and Shani Fleming, MS, MPH, PA-C, are hosting these events to assist underrepresented PA faculty and their allies with a space to write in solidarity. 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    
  • Comfortable clothes  
  • Set up your writing area to be comfortable  
  • Snacks  
  • Remove all distractions (turn off notifications) 
  • Positive energy 

Register for the September 17 writing retreat.
