Georgetown's Office of Scholarly and Literary Publications, part of the Office of the Provost, announces new summer manuscript finishing groups. You'll be matched with a maximum of four colleagues from other departments facing similar literary challenges. In weekly meetings you'll enjoy a firm schedule, ambitious goals and deadlines, and the ability to share and discuss scholarly publishing resources and read one another's work. Organizational principles are based on the Franklin/Covey FOCUS program, the research of psychologist Paul Silvia, and Booklab's hands-on experience for the past three years with how and why faculty finish scholarly books in successful and even award-winning ways.
This tested process works for any book -- even older, abandoned projects. Every accepted participant will end the summer with a complete manuscript.
Please contact the Director, Dr. Carole Sargent, for more information and an application. The first groups will begin the week of May 18.
