Come write with us!

March 26, 2023.

  • Stuck by the blank page?
  • Or spending too much time without getting much done?
  • Hoping to find joy in writing?

Gain momentum by writing productively for an entire day in a community of peers. Get a lot of work done and learn a few strategies to boost productivity at the same time.

We create the structure so that you make headway on your papers!

Registration is closed.

We will let waitlisted students know whether we have space for them by Saturday morning.

Hear what students had to say about previous retreats.

Spaces to write alone or with others

  • Consultations with writing instructors and librarians
  • Lunch is provided.

Some of our optional offerings:

  • yoga
  • options for productive breaks

We will be raffling off an exciting gift at 11:00 for all those who arrive on time!
