Writing Retreats

With their many teaching, administrative, and research responsibilities, it can be difficult for faculty to devote sufficient time to writing. A one-day or multi-day writing retreat gives faculty the chance to focus entirely on a project, to write in a quiet, collaborative environment, and to make significant headway toward project completion. 

Writing retreats are typically scheduled at the end of each semester and over breaks. We provide a quiet space, lunch, and consultants who can offer feedback.

Writing Together

"It's a heartening sight: a bunch of serious academics sitting all together in a room, writing or sharing writing. There's a certain energy in the air that helps people be productive and creates a spirit that's collegial and supportive. We become allies rather than trying to compete with each other."
