Make 2022 the year you successfully meet your writing goals!
SAVE EVERY MONDAY MORNING from
January 24th to April 11th from 9 - 12 p.m. Central time.
Kick off each week writing!
As we begin a new year, and hopefully move beyond life dominated by a pandemic, it’s time to re-energize your writing! Risman’s Writing Retreat will be offering an online writing community for 12 weeks. Join together with others to use these 12 weeks to reflect on why you write, to learn some tricks of the trade, to write together every week and develop a strategy for continued success.
Each zoom writing session will be 3 hours long. Each meeting will begin with some tips of the trade. Tips of the trade involve everything from how to best organize an academic article to structural editing, to guides for line editing. Because writing is not just a technical skill, we will also do some individual and collaborative reflection on why we write, for whom, and where writing fits in our career goals. The community will then be divided into accountability groups that will meet for 15 minutes. Everyone will then focus and spend two solid hours writing. We meet again in our small groups for 15 minutes at the end for accountability and re-convene as a group to wish one another well for another week of writing success.
There are many drop in online writing opportunities. This will be different. There will be weekly accountability structure, and opportunities to provide each other feedback. This will be a writing community. Registration is limited and required. This is designed for people who want to commit to the weekly experience from January 24th to April 11th.
Glad to bill university if those registering are using scholarships or professional development funds.
