Queen’s faculty members were able to focus on writing for a day and gain some insight and guidance during the fifth annual Faculty Writing Retreat, coordinated by the Research Portfolio, on Tuesday, Dec. 11

Held at the Donald Gordon Centre, the annual retreat provides an opportunity for the busy scholar to set aside a full day for reflection, collaboration, and bringing momentum to stalled writing projects.

Throughout the day there were opportunities for discussions with colleagues from across the university, and private one-on-one consultations with University Research Services.

Also on offer was an hour-long writing workshop on writing habits led by Adrian Kelly, Research Projects Advisor in the Faculty of Arts and Science, entitled Around the Blocks: Techniques and Tools to Beat Back Fear, Stop Procrastination, and Become a Daily Writer.
