Writing Retreats

I lead Writing Retreats for the National League for Nursing, as well as at colleges, universities, and healthcare facilities by invitation. If you would be interested in having me come to your facility for a retreat, please click here and send me a message.

The NLN Foundation has scheduled a Fall Writing Retreat to be held from November 7-9, 2014 at the Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, GA. Leslie H. Nicoll, PhD, MBA, RN will be the facilitator.  Leslie Block of the NLN will also be onsite in Atlanta, assisting participants with their final drafts prior to submission

The NLN Scholarly Writing Retreat is designed to help nurse educators enhance writing skills and disseminate research findings and other work in scholarly publications. By the end of the retreat, the goal is for each participant to have a complete, edited paper ready for submission to a scholarly journal.

Due to the intense nature of the work, retreat participants are limited to ten and selected through a competitive application process. Participants work closely with the facilitator for two months prior to the retreat, interacting via telephone, email, and the private blog created specially for the retreat, My Name in Print!. Participants will have access to the facilitator for up to one year after the retreat ends, to assist them through the revision and resubmission process. Access to the blog is ongoing.

The retreat is funded by a generous grant from Pocket Nurse Enterprises, Inc., and the NLN Foundation for Education.

Applications are due by August 8, 2014. Click here to learn more about the retreat and download an application.
