Applications must be emailed to Katie Levin at email@example.com no earlier than Monday, March 20, and no later than Friday, April 7, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Central time. The application consists of the following three parts:
From your advisor
- a brief email (one or two sentences) endorsing your participation in the retreat. This email should be sent directly from your advisor to Katie Levin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- a statement (no longer than one single-spaced page) in response to the following prompt: During this retreat, you will be participating in a structured community of dissertators from across the disciplines, with access to support from writing consultants. How might this be different from your current writing practice, and how might it contribute to your making progress on your dissertation?
- an abstract of your dissertation (no longer than two single-spaced pages). Because so much of the retreat is devoted to sustained writing (rather than research) time, writers whose prospectuses have not yet been approved by their departments or who still need to complete fieldwork should wait until next year to apply.
Applicants will be notified of their status by 5 pm Central time on Thursday, April 20. If you have any other questions or would like to learn more, please feel free to get in touch with Katie Levin (email@example.com; 612.624.7720).
