Grad Writing Retreat #3 Grad Writing Retreat WI21 #3 (Finals Week) Interest Form Make progress on your project and learn strategies for positive, sustainable writing practices through a Graduate Writing Retreat at the Writing Hub. For five consecutive days, starting on Monday, March 15 and concluding on Friday, March 19, writers will "virtually" gather from 9:00am-1:00pm for short workshops focused on sustainable writing practices, concentrated writing time, and the company and solidarity of other graduate writers. Groups will meet and spend time writing together in a virtual Zoom meeting space. A facilitator will lead a 1-hour workshop at the beginning of each session. These workshops introduce strategies and mindsets for building long-term, positive, and sustainable writing practices. During these sessions, grad students will share ideas and experiences, and provide support for each others' writing processes. Around 2.5 hours of each session will be dedicated to focused writing time. This amount of time allows you to make steady progress, without becoming too tired from "binge writing." We trust your judgment about your time and participation when you make the commitment to register for the retreat. We expect that you will respect other' time and the community that forms in each retreat, and make it a priority in your schedule - we expect retreat participants to be on time and present for 90% of the session time. Please note: The Writing Hub’s policy is that grad students can attend a total of three writing retreats per academic year (we consider next summer part of this academic year). While you are welcome to join two retreats back-to-back, it might be beneficial to space them out throughout the academic year. All retreats will cover the same content and we will still expect full attendance every day.
