Writing Retreat for Women Geoscientists and Co-authors

An announcement from the Earth Science Women’s Network:

We are pleased to announce the third annual GAIN writing retreat for women in the Geosciences, July 26-31, at the Connors Family Retreat & Conference Center in Dover, MA (same place as last two years, about 20 miles SW of Boston).

This is a great opportunity to finish that paper that’s been languishing on your desk, or to write up the data you’ve collected this last year. In addition, we swap successful strategies on grantsmanship, teaching, and work-life balance.

This is an NSF-(ADVANCE PAID) funded program; we will provide reimbursement for reasonable travel expenses and will cover all room and board.

Bring a colleague! The grant will pay for some travel funds for colleagues who live outside of New England.

There is wireless internet service and 80 acres of lawn and woodland on the Charles River to relax and let your right brain work on these knotty problems. More information about the facilities is available at: http://www.bc.edu/offices/retreat/. Maps to the Center are included and directions are available at: http://www.bc.edu/offices/retreat/directions/

We will once again have Anne Green as our writing coach on Tuesday. There will be an ice-breaker Sunday evening.

Please register by July 24 for meal-planning purposes (that’s right! no cooking and no cleanup for a whole week!). Return the completed application via email to: jhochstein2@unl.edu or via paper mail to:

Jill Hochstein, ADVANCE-NE/OSVCAA, 21 Canfield Admin., P.O. Box 880420, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln 68588-0420.

$250 Deposit is $250, $150 for week, $100 to be returned at end of retreat.
