FIMSWrites Retreat

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

FIMS and Nursing Building (FNB)
Room: 4110

Runs October 16, 17 and 18.

Snacks and Coffee Provided.

Do you expect to have paper, story, article, report, thesis, or book deadlines this fall? Does having other people writing around you help keep you on-task? Come and join FIMSWrites, an informal initiative to provide some solidarity in the sometimes-solitary writing process.

The FIMSWrites Writers' Retreat is designed to provide a dedicated time and space for intensive writing/working. Participating in the retreat can help you make significant progress in your dissertation, assignments, and (hopefully) help establish good writing habits that will enable you to meet future objectives. By providing you with a comfortable, encouraging, and distraction-free space, this will give you the opportunity to remove yourself from daily distractions and time demands to focus exclusively on writing (or whatever you need to work on.)
What it is: a group of people sitting silently together working on their individual writing projects, with a short coffee, snack, and socializing break in the middle.

What it's not: a writing tutorial or workshop.

Who is this for: FIMS graduate students, staff, instructors, & faculty, and any other FIMS member who may need some focused/quiet time to work!
