Faculty: Need some time to write this summer?

Poster for the faculty Writing Retreat

Are you working on an article or book chapter this summer? And are you looking for some peace and quiet to make progress?

On July 23-26, 2013, the Library is hosting a free, four-day retreat on campus for University of Guelph faculty working on scholarly writing projects such as books, book chapters, and journal articles. You will be provided with a quiet, comfortable, fully wired space, as well as focused time in which to write.

The retreat will offer an opportunity to build a supportive writing group with colleagues from across the university and to join in group discussions on writing and publishing. For those interested, optional sessions and individual consultations with UofG writing consultants and librarians will be available on writing topics such as writer’s block, organization, and style, and on publishing topics such as copyright and author rights.
To participate, you must be working on a specific writing project and be at a stage at which focused writing time makes sense (i.e., finished your research). Participants must also be able to attend all four days of the retreat.

Date: Tuesday to Friday, July 23-26, 2013
Time: 8:45am-2pm*
Location: McLaughlin Library Room 360
*Optional writing time and sessions: 2-4pm daily
See registration form below or, for more information, please contact
