WAC hosted its 10th Faculty Writing Retreat. On January 9th and 10th, Mason’s WAC Program held its 5th winter faculty writing retreat and its 10th overall. Mason’s WAC Program began hosting retreats in May 2014 to provide a distraction-free environment for faculty to work on scholarly projects. Since that time, the retreats have garnered a steady interest, but this retreat was our largest one yet: a total of 48 energetic writers convened in Fenwick Library for two productive days.

Doubt is present in all parts of writing. But this week's #WritersofMason, Assistant Professor of Global Affairs Byunghwan Son, wants us to remember writing is a gradual process and you "can still cut out some of the unnecessary stuff in drafts."
