Weekend Boot Camps offer a way for faculty to get in some dedicated writing time. Participants gather in a common space to work in timed 75-minute sessions on their writing and research. Each day includes four timed sessions. Unlike the extended boot camps where participants are expected to commit to attending for the entire boot camp, attendance at the weekend camps is flexible. Participants are welcome to attend one day or both days and to be present at one session, a few sessions or all sessions. The idea is that you come and go as your schedule allows, but that by attending you’re still able to get some focused time in on your writing.  For more information, please visit About the Weekend Boot Camp.

Extended Writer’s Boot Camps offer faculty a way to get in extensive writing time without sacrificing their entire break. By attending the boot camp all day every day for four straight days, you get a lot of writing done. Participants work in timed 75-minute sessions on their writing and research. Please note: this is not a writing workshop. You will not receive instruction on how to improve your writing. You will have the opportunity to focus on getting your writing done. For more information, please visit About the Extended Writer’s Boot Camp.

For questions about Faculty Boot Camps, please contact Dr. Peggy Lindsey at plindsey@georgiasouthern.edu.

3 Graduate Writer’s Boot Camps offer graduate students a way to accomplish writing goals (i.e. work on degree thesis, course assignments, etc.). Participants gather in a common space to work in timed 75-minute sessions on their writing and research; by registering they commit to attending all sessions of the day. Please note: this is not a writing workshop. You will not receive instruction on how to improve your writing. You will have the opportunity to focus on getting your writing done.
