Let's Write Together

This three-hour retreat provides faculty the opportunity to focus on their writing projects while gaining inspiration and support from fellow academic authors. With guidance from academic writing coach Dannelle Stevens, participants will begin by setting realistic goals and warm up with a focused freewrite. Following that, Dannelle will facilitate group discussion, small group breakouts, and three dedicated writing sessions.

Participants will:

  • Learn practical, focused writing strategies to enhance your writing practice
  • Make meaningful progress on your writing project during three focused writing sessions
  • Benefit from the fellowship and support of a community of like-minded scholars
