Fall Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp
Look for our next Boot Camp: Winter of 2017
Based on popular demand, The Graduate School is pleased to offer a four-day (with an optional on your own 5th day) Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp every Spring and Fall semester for Thesis/Dissertation Writers.
Coffee ONLY will be provided in the morning, so please eat breakfast prior to coming. Lunch and snacks will be provided by The Graduate School. Faculty consultants will be available to work with you 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 an optional afternoon mini-workshop based on the interests of the group.
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 are encouraged to apply as well. 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 Laura Drew (241 Mossman Bldg., UNCG, PO Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170) as a sign of your commitment. For individuals who attend the Boot Camp, this check WILL NOT BE CASHED. It will be returned to you on the last afternoon of the Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp. However, if an individual registers, but cancels after 12:00pm (noon) on the Monday, one week prior to the start of the event, we will consider it to be a contribution to The Graduate School Enrichment Fund, which supports the Writers’ Retreat and other programming for graduate students.
Your registration is not confirmed until we receive your check. You will be notified by The Graduate School once we have confirmed your registration. We must receive your check by two weeks prior to the event or we will remove you from the list and contact an individual from the waiting list.
Please email Laura Drew with questions.
