Writing Retreats

Fall 2021 Writing Retreat Series

 

The Writing and Media Center will host a series of in-person Writing Retreats in Hixson-Lied 0060 specially tailored for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Graduate Student Retreats

Our Graduate Student Retreats are October 1st (9am-4pm), and November 5th (9am-4pm), and December 3rd (9am-4pm). Each retreat will focus on a different area of the writing process and allow for brief presentations, lunch, and dedicated writing time, with consultants available to review work.

Because of the individualized nature of the graduate student retreats, we do have to cap enrollment at 25 attendees. We will note on this page if registration limits have been reached for a retreat, and should a spot open up, we will re-open enrollments to fill that spot.

This retreat will provide graduate students with support in the writing process, the opportunity for peer review, and space to write and gain tips on structuring their writing.
