Writing Boot Camps

Sunday, April 30, 6:00pm-10:00pm

Writing Boot Camp, Session 2
Saturday, May 6, 6:00pm-10:00pm

Studies in social motivation suggest that people persevere and stick to finishing difficult tasks when they see others in the room doing the same thing.  This is the rationale for group writing environment of the Writing Boot Camp.  Writing Boot Camps provide CI students with a quiet, dedicated, and monitored space to write.  A WMC faculty consultant is available for feedback and answering questions on writing.  Spaces are limited to 25 students per session and require students to register in advance.  Students who register must commit to attending the entire weekend session (Saturdays and Sundays). 

Writing Boot Camps are FREE, but you must provide a $20 check/cash deposit, which will be returned to you once you completed the program.  The deposit is meant to encourage students to stick to the program and finish.

Spots are prioritized for capstone students and seniors but any student (including graduate students) may apply.  Students may apply for more than one session, but students will be placed on a waitlist with additional sessions (you may prioritize the session you prefer).

Registration begins Monday, March 27, 2017.   Submit the Writing Boot Camp form (MS Word, 14KB) in person or via email to the Faculty Director (sohui.lee@csuci.edu).

Questions?  Contact Faculty Director Sohui Lee.
