A Writer's Retreat

If you need to make substantial progress on a writing project, then this workshop is a must for you!


It's time to get moving with your term paper, dissertation, thesis, novel, research project, or major writing project. And time is exactly what our writers' retreats offer. Ditch the distractions and join a group of others all motivated to do one thing: putting hands on the keyboard and words on the page.

Retreat participants will engage in brief goal–setting exercises followed by time to write, with Writing Center staff on hand for consultation. Registration is limited to 20 participants for each section so sign up early.

Intended Audience

Any undergraduate or graduate students who need to make significant progress on a writing project.
