The U See I Write: UCI Faculty Writing Retreat initiative was founded in 2016 by UCI Professors Ilona Yim and Elizabeth van Es, both alumni of and coaches for the Faculty Success Program.
The goal of the initiative was to establish a community of UCI faculty members who want to support each other in their writing, learn about good writing habits, and celebrate their writing successes with each other.
Since the successful launch of the first retreat at Hotel Laguna in Laguna Beach, California, the bi-annual event has expanded to include all faculty at UCI.
During the writing retreats, much of the time is spent focused on writing, while also providing ample opportunity to get to know other like-minded writers at UCI.
The retreat is now coordinated by UCI Professors Ilona Yim (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Olga Razorenova (email@example.com). Feel free to contact them with any further questions.
Participation in the U See I Write Faculty Writing Retreat is by application only. The retreat is limited to 30 participants.
Since Spring 2018, applications are open to all UCI faculty members, including teaching professors, regardless of rank from all academic units.
U See I Write Faculty Writing Retreat Spring 2019
LOCATION: Thrope Conference Center (4th floor), Gross Hall
DATE AND TIME: May 17, 2019, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
As academics, much of our professional advancement depends on the success of our writing. However, despite our best intentions, our writing goals often succumb to the pressures of more immediate tasks with more pressing deadlines.
The goal of this writing retreat is to establish a community of UCI faculty members who want to support each other in their writing, learn about good writing habits, and celebrate their writing successes with each other. This call for applications is open to all UCI faculty members (including teaching professors), regardless of rank and from all academic units.
During the retreat, we will spend the majority of the time on simply writing, while also providing ample opportunity to get to know other like-minded writers at UCI.
DETAILS: The retreat is limited to a maximum of 30 participants, and participation is by application only.
COST: This event is sponsored by UCI’s Office of Inclusive Excellence. Participants are responsible for their own transportation.
