The Graduate Writing Retreat is a week-long event designed to help graduate students make significant progress on their thesis or dissertation. Generally held in January, June, and August, our graduate writing retreats provide a comfortable, supportive environment where you can focus entirely on your writing.
It is an opportunity to learn and practice healthy writing habits, work with other graduate students, and take advantage of guidance from writing consultants. You can be at any stage in the dissertation or thesis process, as long as you plan to use the retreat primarily for writing rather than research.
On the first day, the group will work together to identify common problems for graduate student writers and strategies for addressing them, review retreat policies, and establish house rules. You will draft a personal writing plan and meet with a graduate writing consultant to discuss your goals and concerns.
After that, a typical day will involve at least four hours of writing time, with optional time in the afternoons to meet with writing consultants. At the end of retreat, you will have the chance to re-evaluate your goals and progress.
Enrollment is capped at 15 students, admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must commit to the structure and rules of the retreat. See the Groups and Retreats page for dates and application information.
