Writing Retreat Grants

The purpose of the Society's writing retreat is to provide members of the Society with a dedicated block of time, as well as collegiate interaction, networking and support, for the development of focused advances in academic writing. With input and guidance from 'expert' facilitators, the retreat will provide a collective opportunity for thinking through how to write both productively and in lively, engaging styles.
