This year's Pen to Paper Retreat, hosted by several regional Campus Compact Affiliates, will be November 9-11, 2017 in Rochester, NY. This event has three tracks, for those who are: planning to write, ready to write, or ready to publish. Link here for more information or to register. Pen to Paper is an academic writing retreat designed to provide time, space, and resources to guide faculty, professional staff, graduate students, and community partners working on (or planning for) journal manuscripts related to service- and community-engagement.
"The two and a half-day retreat provides participants with time to discuss ideas with and receive feedback from journal editors, receive mentoring from senior faculty coaches, share ideas with peers, and write.
Each year attendance is intentionally kept to a minimum in order to foster personal connections between participants and their journal editors and senior faculty coaches. The small group also provides the space participants need to focus on their writing."
