Scholarly Writing Retreat 2017

The Center for the Humanities is offering its annual Scholarly Writing Retreat from May 23-June 2 (with a break for the three-day Memorial Day weekend). Led by Erin McGlothlin (GLL and JINES), the initiative offers WU humanities faculty and graduate students the opportunity to jump-start their summer writing in a motivated, supportive and collaborative atmosphere. 

Participants will bring their laptops and research materials to the Center for the Humanities and work intensively (but quietly!) on their individual projects in communal spaces, following a schedule of focused writing periods, lunch breaks (participants will bring their own lunch or eat at the DUC), coffee breaks and group discussions of optimal work strategies and writing practices. 

A limited number of spots is available; participants will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis. Please RSVP by May 1 by filling out this online RSVP. Participants are not required to attend the entire duration of the workshop.
