Summer Writing Retreats

Writing MattersWould you like dedicated writing time to work on that chapter, article, grant proposal, or creative project? If so, consider joining one of the CTLT's Summer Writing Retreats. Writing Retreats are designed to help you achieve your writing goals. They are open to all faculty and staff working on writing projects such as academic journal articles, grant proposals and reports, creative writing, and more. We offer multiple retreats each summer.

Writing Retreats - Summer 2022

Have a writing project? Join a CTLT Summer Writing Retreat. If some dedicated time and peer support will help you make significant progress as you hammer out that chapter, article, grant proposal, or creative project, then the CTLT’s upcoming three-day summer writing retreats are designed for you.

Retreat Dates
Session #1: June 20-22, Mon-Wed, 10am-3pm

Session #2: July 6-8, Wed-Fri, 10am-3pm

Session #3: August 16-18, Tues-Thurs, 10am-3pm

Session #4: August 30-September 1, Tues-Thurs, 10am-3pm 

All retreats will take place in the Kennedy Library, on the third floor, northwest corner. These are designed as in-person retreats but can also be attended virtually.

Facilitator: Dianna Winslow, CTLT Writing Specialist.

We’ll provide encouragement, consultation, and opportunities for collegial feedback, as well as snacks, drinks, and lunch. You supply the words and mutual support.

Participants will spend each day working on individual writing projects, whether at the conceptual stage, the polishing stage or any stage in between. They will also have opportunities to give and receive peer-to-peer feedback from colleagues at the beginning and end of the day, and at the lunchtime check-in.

Participants are encouraged to commit to all three days of the retreat to maximize productivity for themselves and for their colleagues.
