Faculty Writing Retreat

Donald Gordon Centre

Thursday, April 20, 2017
8:30 am - 5:00 pm
 

Registration is open for the Queen's Faculty Writing Retreat for the busy scholar. A full day – comprising of discussions with research facilitators mixed with long blocks of uninterrupted writing time – is free for registered participants, and includes lunch. Space is limited.

We encourage you to set this time aside to stimulate your creativity and to write. Proposal reviewers will be available for private one-on-one consultations.

Questions may be directed to Leigh Cameron or Kelly Blair-Matuk. Registration will open more broadly on April 3 to faculty working on any publications, and it will close on April 11 or when all available spaces are filled. This event is being coordinated by the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research).
