2014 Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp

The Graduate School is pleased to offer a week-long Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp for Thesis/Dissertation Writers in May 2014. This extended opportunity to focus on your writing will take place during the week of May 19-23 (Monday-Friday), from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily on the UNCG campus.

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided each day. Faculty will be available for consultation on writing issues, and you are also welcome to make arrangements to consult your advisor/committee members if they are available. In addition to dedicated writing time, we plan to include mini-sessions on time management, submitting the thesis or dissertation electronically, exercise and stress management, etc.

Registration is limited, although we will make every effort to accommodate writers committed to making progress. First preference will be given to doctoral students who are working on the dissertation. Master’s thesis writers may also apply and will be notified if space is available. A waiting list will be created as necessary.

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS EVENT, but in order to be registered, you must also submit a $100 personal check (made payable to UNCG – The Graduate School) to The Graduate School, c/o Dr. Laura Chesak (241 Mossman Bldg., UNCG, PO Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170) as a sign of your commitment. For individuals who attend the Boot Camp in its entirety, this check WILL NOT BE CASHED. It will be returned to you on the last day of the Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp. However, if an individual registers but cancels after May 1, or does not attend the entire week, The Graduate School reserves the right to cash the check to help defray expenses.

Your registration is not confirmed until we receive your check and approval from your faculty advisor (we will contact your advisor once we receive your registration and check). You will be notified by The Graduate School once we have confirmed your registration. We must receive your check by Friday, April 25, 2014 by 5:00 pm or we will remove you from the list and contact an individual from the waiting list.

Please email Dr. Laura Chesak (lachesak@uncg.edu) with questions.

Registration is now complete.
