Dear colleagues,

Applications are now open for the 2020 Fall Quarter Remote Writing Retreat – U See I Write. Participation is by application only and the retreat is limited to 30 participants.

The retreat will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, December 4, 2020 via Zoom.

To apply, visit the application tab here

Staying committed to writing goals can be challenging under the best of circumstances, and our writing goals often succumb to the pressures of more immediate tasks with more pressing deadlines. In the midst of current events, it may be even more difficult to maintain our regular writing routines.

The goal of the U See I Write Faculty Writing Retreat is to establish a community of UCI faculty members who want to support each other in their writing, learn about good writing habits, and celebrate their writing successes with each other.

During the retreat, the majority of the time will be spent on simply writing, while also providing ample opportunity to get to know other like-minded writers at UCI.

ELIGIBILITY: This call for applications is open to UCI faculty members, regardless of rank and from all academic units. Applications from emeriti faculty and from visiting faculty will be considered but given lower priority. Postdoctoral researchers and staff members are unfortunately ineligible to apply.

TO APPLY: Please follow the link to the application form. All applications are due by Friday, November 27, 2020. Decision letters will be emailed with Zoom access links by Professors Yim and Razorenova on Tuesday, December 1.
