The TMTC Annual Fall Welcome Dinner is a wonderful way to begin the year, reconnect with old friends, and make new ones. This year we will be tweaking the format slightly to include a celebration of research.
Writing. We all need to do it, yet we often find it difficult to make time for this important part of our academic work. We struggle to meet our goals (or to even set them in the first place) and can wind up feeling some combination of stressed, isolated, anxious, and demotivated. Academic structured writing retreats (SWR) help address some of these barriers to achieving writing goals through a community of practice approach. By providing dedicated space that prioritizes writing, creating a co-operative (yet non-surveillance) environment, and pushing you to think through strategic and specific goals for your writing, SWR foster productivity for writers at all stages of a writing project. The structure of the retreat also makes space for breaks, snacks, meals, and even a bit of moving/exercise, which make writing more sustainable and less detrimental to our physical health and wellness.
