Following a successful summer boot camp, we are moving ahead with more opportunities to participate in writing boot camps during the 2017-18 academic year.
October 24-28, 2017 - Wachapreague Writer's Retreat - CANCELED
This opportunity is for dissertation and thesis writers (or those writing first author manuscripts). If you will benefit from a writing environment that is relatively free of both work and home distractions, this is the boot camp for you. Camp participants will stay in one of the ESL houses (not the large dorm) and will be provided with three meals a day, snacks throughout the day and optional evening or early morning activities that are intended to support health and well-being. Participants should plan to arrive by 11:30 am on Wednesday October 24th and depart by noon on Saturday October 28th. Space is limited and priority will be given to senior students. Applications are due by 5 pm on September 26th.
Applicants will be notified of acceptance by Monday October 3, 2017 and will be required to submit a participant agreement and a $50 refundable deposit by Friday October 6, 2017.
CANCELATION NOTICE: This session has been canceled due to low enrollment.
