Event Description 

Join us for a week of super-focused writing time! Churn out those pages before the semester ends so you can schedule some relaxation time over the holidays! As always, our sessions seek to create a community of writers who connect, set realistic goals, and write together to motivate each other and make progress on their academic projects.

This program is open to anyone, students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, or staff, who are actively writing their proposals, chapters, papers, manuscripts, or books.
