Why pay hundreds of dollars for ANOTHER writing group?
We meet weekly (mostly) and will help you: keep on top of writing deadlines, meet co-writers, and find beta readers — all within a supportive community of mother-scholars. Log into your account to sign up.
2 Day Virtual Writing Retreat
IAMAS’ 2-day virtual Summer Writing Retreat will provide the accountability, guidance, and community you need to achieve your goals. We welcome mother-scholars of all levels and disciplines. Our retreats focus primarily on writing accountability, but we also make time for brainstorming sessions and/or matched content peer review sessions, instruction, and optional lunchtime social/networking times. Depending on need, we have offered targeted writing workshops.
This retreat is free for all IAMAS members, and only $40 for non-members.
A Room of One’s Own Grant
IAMAS believes mother-scholars’ work is critically important and needs dedicated space to flourish. Alongside our retreat, we offer our “A Room of One’s Own” grant program. Through this, IAMAS offers four, two-night hotel vouchers ($350) to scholars facing childcare challenges. Stipends may also be used for childcare. Funds must be used during writing retreat and retreat attendance is required.
