How do you plan to spend your winter break? Many of us hope to have time to enjoy life, prepare classes for spring semester, and also complete a writing project or two, or more…Oftentimes, we find ourselves saying “I just didn’t get as much done as I planned” and start the next semester again wondering how to set and reach writing goals.
This year, consider taking control of your writing life. Schedule time now to participate in the MSU December Writing Week:
|Mon. December 16th||9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.||Meyer Alumni Center Hospitality Suite|
|Tue. December 17th||9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.||Meyer Alumni Center Hospitality Suite|
|Wed. December 18th||9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.||Meyer Library Room 204|
|Thur. December 19th||9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.||Meyer Library Room 204|
*Coffee, tea, snacks, and a light lunch will be provided; Meyer Alumni Center has Free Parking on Level 3 of the Parking Garage (300 South Jefferson)
This three and a half day retreat is an opportunity to participate in a supportive community that facilitates writing productivity. My goal is that each of us leaves the retreat with a feeling of accomplishment and a resolve to spend the remainder of break without lingering writing guilt.
Registration is now open via My Learning Connection. Also, you may sign up for fewer days depending on your schedule. The retreat is sponsored by the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning, the Office of the Provost, and the Associate Provost for Student Development and Public Affairs. This retreat is free of charge to MSU participants.
Please contact me with any questions. I hope you are thriving this semester.
