Graduate Writing Retreat: June 9-11

This June the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication (CWSC) holds its 3 day Graduate Writing Retreat (GWR) virtually. Join other UBC Vancouver graduate students online to write in community and make progress on any type of manuscript or document: thesis, research article, abstract, conference talk, statement of teaching philosophy, and so on. Each of the three morning sessions focus on the stylistic and structural features of writing in particular disciplines and professions: writing in the STEM disciplines (June 9); social scientific writing (June 10); writing in the humanities (June 11).

While morning sessions address particular communities of writers, participants from across the disciplines and professions are encouraged to attend all morning sessions to promote cross-disciplinary conversations about writing style.    In addition to ample dedicated writing time using the Pomodoro technique, the GWR features a number of pedagogical supports, including one-on-one writing consultations with doctoral students from the CWSC, academic and professional writing resources, and self-reflexive writing practices such as goal-setting and reflection.

Facilitators: Dr. Patty Kelly and Liam Monaghan, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication

Dates & Time: Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday, June 9, 10, & 11, 10am-4pm PDT.
