The Society for Spirituality & Social Work has transitioned our annual conference to a virtual format and we would love to have you join us! Our theme is New Beginnings, which is especially relevant as the world continues to transition through the pandemic with the promise of an end in sight. We are grateful for your patience as we joined other professional organizations in learning how to transition to an online delivery format.

This virtual Writing Retreat provides a dedicated writing time and space with colleagues who are working on manuscripts, book chapters, etc. Plus, two informative breakout sessions give insider views on writing book proposals and tips for publishing in journals including ways to increase your article's impact!
Every academic knows how important scholarly productivity is to a career in higher education, yet finding the time and/or motivation to focus on writing can be difficult with all of the competing demands for your attention. We have created a space where you can work alongside your scholar colleagues in a virtual writing room. We're also offering Career Development Workshops and networking breakout rooms.
