July 2013 Postdoctoral "WRITING SUITE"
An opportunity to work on an article, grant, or application
Friday, July 12, 2013 · 9 AM - 5 PM
On Campus : Commons 318
Dear Postdocs at UMBC,
We invite all postdocs on campus (all backgrounds, all disciplines) to consider coming to campus on Friday, July 12, 2013 for a "Postdoctoral Writing Suite." Modeled after the PROMISE Dissertation House, the Postdoctoral Writing Suite will provide you with an opportunity to spend some time on an article or manuscript that you are preparing for publication, a grant that you need to submit, or a job application that you need to prepare. In short, it is time away from the library, lab, or department to focus on something that you need to write for your own personal development. Best practices from The Dissertation House show that participants who share goals in a group setting and then have focused time to work on those goals often find that they are able to move closer to completing said goals.
8:30 Breakfast (Commons 318)
9:00 Opening for Postdoctoral Group (Led by Dr. Judith Pollack)
12:00 Lunch (Skylight Room)

This session will include a special segment on "Individual Development Plans."
This event (including meals) is free for postdocs. Please login to MyUMBC, and RSVP here (click the "I can attend" button below) and add a comment to mention items that you might work on during the session. We have limited capacity for this session, but hope to have similar sessions on the future. Please join us for this "Postdoc Writing Suite."
