Retreats

At writing retreats, faculty and graduate students spend one full day writing in a quiet space with no talking, no distractions.

We'll provide breakfast and lunch, along with water, coffee, and tea. Space is limited to 45 and fills quickly.

All writing retreats are 8:30AM–4:00PM in the Howe Center for Writing Excellence. Within two weeks of the retreat you've signed up for, you'll receive a Google Calendar invite to confirm your registration.
