About the Writer’s Retreat

Join ACPA and key leaders for a virtual retreat that will center the Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization. The retreat will offer participants opportunities for writing in community, individual and group coaching, and support in the writing and publication processes. This retreat grows out of the understanding that writing is a power-laden activity that has been made more difficult by racist and settler colonial schooling, but is also a tool for liberatory knowledge creation, knowledge sharing, and practice. Facilitators have experience leading writing retreats, writing groups, and writing workshops, as well as writing and publishing themselves.

What to Expect

Participating writers will learn about their own writing processes, common barriers to writing, and publication opportunities within ACPA and the larger student affairs field. Participants will also develop a writing plan and process that will guide them toward publication while building community with writers and scholars across the association. As part of this experience, writers can expect:

  • 20 hours of contact time including 16 hours of dedicated writing time, 4 hours of professional development time. Professional development sessions include:
    • Having a Strategic Plan for Your Writing
    • How to Integrate SIRJD into your Writing
    • Roundtable with current editors of ACPA publications (Developments, About Campus, Journal of College Student Development, and ACPA Books)
    • Reflections on the Retreat and Steps Moving Forward.
  • Small group writing and coaching with facilitating faculty
  • One-on-one consultations as needed with facilitating faculty
