Are you a UIC doctoral student studying race and ethnicity? Come to WriteOut! to write.
We are now accepting applications for *WriteOut!, an IRRPP dissertation writing retreat.* This one-week, writing-intensive self-directed retreat is geared towards UIC doctoral students researching issues of race and ethnicity in any discipline, who are writing their dissertation or dissertation proposal or other required document related to their PhD, and who need support and structure for their writing.
From Jan 6-10, 2014, Monday through Friday, 9-5pm, come to WriteOut! to write. The retreat includes breakfast, a short daily non-judgmental accountability meeting with writing advisor Michelle Boyd, some printing and copying, and is free to those who complete the retreat. The retreat is offered three times a year. The goal is to support you in your writing and progress to degree.
