Following a successful writing retreat in October 2020, the Faculty Accelerator will host an ongoing writing group on Zoom on Fridays in Spring 2021. UAF faculty, staff, post-grads, and graduate students are invited to join us for either (or both!) of two 3-hour writing sessions at 8-11am and 1-4pm. Join on Zoom at the start of the session to meet the group and make a plan for your writing. Join the #writing-retreat channel in the UAF Faculty Hub Slack team to discuss, get feedback, and connect with your colleagues.
