January 20:
Hi all:  A reminder that your Pub 1 Assignment 2: Reflection on the Residency and Pitching is due on January 23 at midnight your time. Please be sure to follow the instructions on what to name the file (found in your syllabus). Lost your syllabus? You can always download a copy from the Pub I Brightspace page.

Also coming up: Assignment 3: Legal issues, due Feb. 20. The recorded Q&A with Dean Jobb and lawyer Peter Jacobsen is available on Brightspace—links in the Announcements on both the Online Community and Pub I Brightspace pages.

Any questions? Get in touch,

Hi all: I promised last week to send along an email with the summer residency dates, so here you are: Saturday, June 3 to Sunday June 11. While the schedule is not yet finalized, generally we start on Saturday morning and wind up on Sunday June 11 at around 4 or 5 pm. So, if you are coming from out of town, you will likely want to arrive the evening of June 2. You could depart the evening of June 11.

If you wish to stay on campus, you should contact Conference Services. They have not yet posted their summer 2023 rates, but their 2022 rates and contact info may be found here. There are also student residence rooms available at Dalhousie. You're not obliged to stay on campus: hotels and AirBnB are also an option.

More info will follow from Dean and Gillian as residency details are finalized.


Winter Residency

Latest updates:

Message from Kim:
Hi all: Looking forward to seeing you all online on January 8! The residency schedule is posted to Brightspace in the Online Community. It is also posted in the Publishing I section, along with the Publishing I syllabus, a recorded overview of the residency, a recorded overview of Publishing I, and a variety of Publishing I assignment resources. Attached here—and posted to Brightspace—is the Winter Guests Bio package, including bios of guests for the residency as well as the winter webinars. 

NOTE: Your first assignment--"Supporting Your Writing"--is due on January 7 at midnight your time. I will be taking the week between Christmas and New Year's off, so if you have questions about this assignment, please get them to me before Dec. 24 or after Jan. 2.

Schedules and Zoom links:
The Pitch Day schedule—which tells you who you will be meeting with—will be shared on the first day of the residency.

Zoom links for the residency session will be posted to Brightspace in the Online Community, and will also be emailed to you the evening before the sessions.

You will hear from your coffee shop hosts with links to their Zoom rooms at the beginning of January.

You will also hear directly from your mentor with links to their Zoom sessions.

Summer residency:
And looking ahead to the June residency: A number of you have asked about dates for the residency. It will run from Saturday, June 3 through Sunday, June 11, and we anticipate being in-person, pandemic permitting. 

Have a wonderful holiday break, and we'll see you in January!
