Academic Writing Retreat for Women Geoscientists


From August 3 – August 8, 2014, a group of women geoscientists will gather at Wisdom House for a writing retreat. Writing retreats began as part of the NSF ADVANCE Program to increase the number of women in the academy through building a community and learning good writing habits and skills.

Now in their eighth year, over 50 papers have been published as part of the writing retreat.  Any female geoscientist who wants time and community while writing articles or proposals is welcome to participate. Participants range from graduate students to retired full professors. A video about the writing at a previous location is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xuTJCIDrP4.
