Campus Writing Retreats Day-long Writing Retreats for your Campus or Conference
"Time is not enough." -Macleod et al 2011
Scholars need more than a place to write. They also need concrete, actionable strategies that help them manage the inevitable challenges of writing. InkWell's day-long Campus Writing Retreats are for funding associations, colleges, universities, institutes, professional associations, and conference organizers who want to:
offer capacity-building writing support instead of just time and space to write
build intellectual and social community--within or across disciplines
increase engagement among disaffected or discouraged scholars
increase the effectiveness of existing campus support programs
support the matriculation, recruitment, and retention of underrepresented graduate students and faculty
The Campus Writing Retreat increases scholars' focus and productivity by teaching them simple, effective techniques for setting and meeting their writing goals. It helps scholars demystify writing and gain more pleasure from both the act of writing and its completion. InkWell's Campus Writing Retreats last for a full day (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) and includes an opening group coaching session, facilitation of small-group check in meetings, and a closing group coaching session.
"Thanks to your guidance I submitted a research paper to one of my discipline's major conferences on April 1--something I haven't done in years. It felt great."
