You’ve been procrastinating for months (and sometimes years) about completing that one article or chapter that has been on your computer desktop for a long time. Your colleagues have asked you time and time again about that status of moving towards completion and you are having difficulty getting motivated or focused. Well, we are here to help!
The Write Right Now! program is a professional retreat/destination workshop for those interested in writing towards completing an article, chapter, thesis, dissertation, or book. This devoted time, space, and professional support may allow you to reconnect and write about your original concept or develop a new idea that you would like to eventually publish.
Led by Editor in Chief of the Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships (University of Nebraska Press), Dr. James Wadley, the writing retreat will allow the time, space, and support needed to move forward with your manuscript through planning, goal setting, and accountability. This supportive experience in Lima, Peru before the close of the year will enable you to FINALLY get over the hump by the conclusion of 2018.

Description: For our retreat, we will meet each morning during breakfast to discuss writing goals, expectations, and potential obstructions. Support will be garnered through group discussion and feedback to increase the likelihood of completing your writing goals. Team building exercises will create a sense of cohesion so that we will be able to support one another and provide a high level of accountability. At the conclusion of the morning meeting (10:00-10:30AM), you will Write Right Now! by moving to a space at the hotel, downtown Lima, or waterfront that allows each person to work towards completing their chapter, manuscript, or other written narrative. At 6:30PM, we will come together to discuss individual writing progress for accountability and share other cultural experiences over dinner.
