How to Apply

WriteOut! Retreats are held two times a year, in May and July. IRRPP Faculty Fellows are given priority and they are the fist to be able to apply before we open up remaining spaces to all UIC faculty. These spaces usually fill up within just a few days of being announced, so be on the lookout for an announcement through our listserv. If you are interested in attending the next retreat, follow these three steps to increase your chances of getting in.

1. Apply for one of our PSEF or Faculty Fellowships.

Applications for our fellowships are welcome from all disciplines across UIC. Junior faculty and faculty and graduate students from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups are especially encouraged to apply. Find out more here.

2. Sign up for our mailing list.

Once registration begins, we accept applications until the program is full. If you want to be sure you are among the first to hear about it, you can sign up for IRRPP's listserv and get all of our announcements, including admission to WriteOut!.

3. Draft your application.

We typically announce and open registration 6 to 8 weeks in advance. Applying is easy and it doesn't hurt to have the information ready. Be ready to fill out the form when we email it.
