Time to Write Retreat, June 13 -16

Event Date:
Monday, June 13, 2022, 12:00 pm

Are you trying to find some dedicated time to finish a writing project that needs focused attention? Time to Write retreats offer concentrated time to support your writing efforts and can be instrumental in the initiation or completion of scholarly work such as an article, book or book chapter, grant proposal, curriculum or OER development, conference presentations, or other scholarly, creative projects.  

Time to work on writing projects away from home and campus for a few days can be incredibly productive. Participation in a writing retreat with colleagues at various stages of their career not only provides quiet, focused writing time away from teaching, research, and administrative responsibilities, but it also offers mentorship and networking opportunities with colleagues from a range of disciplines. The retreat provides an opportunity to develop a supportive writing group with colleagues from across campus and join group discussions on writing and publishing. 

A Time to Write retreat will be offered from Monday June 13, to Thursday June 16, 2022, at the North Rustico Cottages.   

Participants must have a project at a stage where sustained writing time makes sense with research and/or data collection and analysis completed to the point that they are ready to write. Participants must be prepared to commit to the full program a total of 3 days focused on writing and contribute $300. The retreat is open to faculty and librarians in any academic unit at UPEI. Interested participants should email an expression of interest consisting of a summary of the project they plan to work on and their writing goals for the retreat to TLC@upei.ca by 9:00 am Monday, May 30, 2022. Six participants will be accepted for this Time to Write summer retreat.
