LEAF's Manuscript Writing Workshop
May 4 - 6, 2016
This two-and-a-half day retreat will facilitate completing and submitting a research manuscript. Our goals are to cultivate a supportive group of productive researchers and to improve the research productivity of STEM women at UC, with a particular focus on minority women.
The 2016 Manuscript Writing Workshop will take place at the Mariemont Inn, 6880 Wooster Pike Cincinnati, Ohio 45227.
Participants spend a few days (May 4-6, 2016) attending the retreat and gaining critical skills, inspiration and guidance to kick-start a writing project. Participants then work independently over the summer term (Summer 2016) to complete that proposed project. Campus writing circles are offered to help support ongoing commitment to participants' projects.
The Manuscript Writing Workshop is co-sponsored by LEAF, the Chief Diversity Officer and the participants' home departments. All retreat costs are covered and participants who successfully submit their manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal by the end of summer term 2016 will receive a $500 grant.
Participants will also receive a copy of the book Becoming An Academic Writer by Patricia Goodson, our facilitator.
All UC full-time female faculty in NSF STEM disciplines are eligible to participate. Priority will be given to minority women and to women faculty approaching tenure or promotion. Applicants must obtain approval from their departmental chair.
Conditions of Participation
- Participants must attend the entire retreat (May 4-6, 2016).

- Approximately $350 (per room) of lodging costs must be covered by the participant's home department. Please let your Department Head know that s/he will receive an email asking to approve this funding expense. Participants may share a room to reduce costs.
