Invite You to
A Faculty Writing Retreat
Institute for Writing Studies, Library Room 150, Queens Campus
Friday, December 20, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
REGISTER NOW; participation is limited.At the last Faculty Writing Retreat participants brought up the idea that if they could learn more about one another, they might find new interdisciplinary research connections, or they might find colleagues interested in multidisciplinary writing support groups. So when you register for the December Faculty Writing Retreat, please take a few minutes to respond in the open-ended space on the registration form. You might briefly note your research area(s) and/or say if you're in search of collaborators with any particular interests or expertise. And you might note if you're interested in reading someone else's writing, having someone read your writing in progress, or if you're interested in an accountability partner (someone you'd check in with to report on your writing progress). We'll have the information you provide available to all participants at the retreat.
The Faculty Writing Retreat offers you the opportunity to commit to a day of writing surrounded by your colleagues who will have made the same commitment as you. Published research – and our own experience from previous St. John's Faculty Writing Initiative writing retreats we've held – tells us the positive energy of being around faculty peers who are also writing (and struggling to write) helps faculty get substantial work done, even in one day.
As to the schedule for the retreat, you will arrive and begin writing. We are certain there will be much writing advice to be shared during lunch, which will be served at 12:30pm. We hope you will be able to join us. Please remember that participation is limited; to register go to www.stjohn.edu/ctl. If you have any questions, email Anne Geller (email@example.com) or Maura Flannery (firstname.lastname@example.org).
