Call for applications: 2014 CILA January Writing Retreat “Writing and Revising for Submission”
Are you working on developing a work-in-progress, revising a conference presentation for publication, revising with referee feedback for resubmission, or redirecting a rejected manuscript this winter?
The 2014 CILA January Writing Retreat - led by Director of Writing and Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Diane LeBlanc – provides structured writing time in a distraction-free atmosphere among supportive colleagues.
During the day-long retreat sessions on weekdays from January 6-24, 9:00am-3:30pm, participants will write daily, choosing to work alone or in quiet group spaces. Writers also will meet for coaching, inspiration, editing, and support.
Some comments from last year’s retreat participants:
“I made substantial progress on revising a chapter of my dissertation for submission as a journal article. I received valuable feedback from both the other participants and Diane. I would likely not have been as productive without the structure of the retreat.”
“The regular meeting and scheduled deadlines helped me to develop a routine writing practice. The writing group was great for that.”
“It was great to talk about writing and think about writing practice for three whole weeks!”
