Intensive Writing Retreats

Intensive Faculty and Librarian Writing Retreat

Do you have a writing, research, teaching, or administrative project that you want to get off the ground? Maybe you have an article manuscript that you need to finalize before sending it off, a new class to plan, or a report or proposal you need to polish? The Center for Research and Creative Activities and the Mary G. Walsh Writing Center are pleased to announce an intensive Faculty and Librarian Writing Retreat: three full days of uninterrupted time so that you can focus on academic or creative writing and research projects. This event is perfect for those who need a short-term, writing intensive space and time. You will be free to spend your time privately working, informally chatting with colleagues about writing over provided meals and snacks, or receiving feedback on your writing from an experienced writing center consultant.

The writing retreat will take place June 6-8, 2018. Watch the Academic Affairs Newsletter for the call for applications.
