All graduate students are invited to participate in Weekly Writing Hours and Writing Retreats.

Weekly Writing Hours

Graduate students and faculty are invited to drop-in for any length of time to work quietly on their writing or to take advantage of feedback from HWC writing consultants. There will be free coffee and power for your laptops. The King Café is downstairs for snacks.

No registration needed.

Writing Retreats (Formerly Boot Camps)

In 2018-19, Boot Camps will be renamed to Writing Retreats. Attendees spend one full day directing their undivided attention and focus toward their writing, in a quiet space with no talking and no distraction. The HCWE provides a continental breakfast and a simple lunch, along with water, coffee, and tea. If you have specific dietary needs, you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks.

All writing retreats are held from 8:30am-4pm in the Howe Writing Center in King Library. Register through the form below.
