Writing Retreat

Simpson Writing Across the Curriculum (SWAC) and Faculty Development are collaborating to offer a SWAC faculty retreat facilitated by Beth Beggs on the West Des Moines campus. The retreat will take place across two, nonconsecutive days:  Tuesday, June 11 and Tuesday, June 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In between these two dates, you’ll work individually on your writing assignment.

This opportunity includes a $200 stipend and is limited to 10 people.

Participants will leave the two-day retreat with:

  • a greater level of comfort providing intentional instruction about writing topics to their students
  • a peer reviewed draft of one writing assignment
  • a plan for providing intentional instruction of writing associated with that assignment
  • a plan for using your Writing Fellow and/or the Simpson Writing Center as part of the intentional instruction
  • a plan for annotating an example of a good paper for your assignment

Lunch will be provided both days.

Tuesday, June 18 at 9:00am to 4:00pm
