Grad Student Writing Retreats

Writing retreats are series of sessions that combine group workshops, individualized writing support, and dedicated time for making progress on long and/or complex writing projects. In each session, graduate students will interact with an encouraging community of writers from across the disciplines; learn strategies for developing productive and sustainable writing practices; overcome writer’s block; and make meaningful progress on writing projects such as seminar papers, research proposals, conference presentations, journal articles, theses, dissertations, and job application materials.

All retreats will take place over Zoom during Winter 2023.
