Writing Intensive

You are invited to take part in a one-week writing intensive led by Kate McCarthy. The intensive will run the week of 6/27-6/30 8am-4pm and applications are due on 6/16 by midnight. Applicants are expected to be physically present and participate all day for all four days. The focus of this intensive is on substantive writing, so it is most suitable for projects that are already in development. Space is limited and participants will be compensated in the amount of $500.

There will be time for writing, time for peer-feedback, and then more writing. Did we mention there will be writing?

CLICK HERE to fill out the application. Notifications will come out on 6/21.

CELT History

CSU, Chico 's CELT program was established in the fall of 1994 to enhance student learning as recommended by the Presidential Task Force Reports. A group of core faculty members, dedicated to teaching and responding to the concerns of their colleagues, met that year to craft a mission statement for CELT. In the fall of 1995, CELT held its first annual teaching conference. Today, CELT continues to support and recognize CSU, Chico faculty, departments, and campus programs.
