Qual Scholars Writing Retreat

“If only I had some uninterrupted writing time, I could finish this dissertation.”

here is your chance to get some serious writing done

Writing is never just writing. It’s working through all the other stuff life throws at you so that you can have the energy and space to focus on your writing. The retreat will provide plenty of quiet writing time, but we’ll also create space for you to talk with and learn from other retreat attendees. In sessions with other attendees, there will be a lot of dialogue about your work - thoughtful questions, brainstorming, peer review and feedback, etc.

When: Join Dr. Marvette Lacy on Sunday, November 24th - Wednesday, November 27th for 4 days of time, space, and support for writing and productivity.
