Need to get some writing done this summer? Our mini-writing retreats have been very successful in helping folks write (words! pages! entire journal articles!). 

You are cordially invited to join your colleagues from the Pittsburgh Gender Scholars Consortium for structured writing time, with feedback and encouragement from peers, time to learn about each other’s work, and lots of coffee. Thanks to support from Chatham University, we are able to provide lunch. We meet on the lovely Shadyside campus and there is free parking.

You are welcome to come to any or all dates that work for you — but please register asap as room is limited! You may rsvp to Melody Harris (M.Harris [at] chatham [dot] edu) who also keeps a waiting list for each session and will contact you if space opens up. Please also let her know of any dietary restrictions or accommodations you might need.
