Invite You to A Faculty Writing Retreat
Location: Institute for Writing Studies, Library
Room 150, Queens Campus
Date: Friday, August 26, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4
To Register: Contact the CTL at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 1859;
participation is limited.
The August 26th Faculty Writing Retreat is a one-day opportunity to
get your writing jumpstarted for the semester!
It offers you the opportunity to commit to a day of writing
surrounded by your colleagues who will have made the same
commitment as you. Published research – and our own experience from
the 11 previous St. John's Faculty Writing Initiative writing
retreats we've held – tells us the positive energy of being around
faculty peers who are also writing (and struggling to write) helps
faculty get substantial work done, even in one day.
As to the schedule for the retreat, you will arrive and begin
writing. We are certain there will be much writing advice to be
shared during lunch, which will be served at 12:30pm. We hope you
will be able to join us for the day. Please remember that
participation is limited; please RSVP at email@example.com or ext.
1859. If you have any questions, email Anne Geller (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Maura
