Faculty Writing Services

Writing Retreats

The Centers for Writing and Faculty Development offer 1-week on-campus retreats three times a year (June, August, and January) for full-time and adjunct faculty to make substantial progress on their writing projects. The retreats provide quiet space on campus where writers establish individual workspace and write among other focused, productive faculty. Participants bring all materials needed for their projects (including laptops if they’d like), and spread out for the week at tables in the Center for Writing or one of two computer classrooms in the John Roach Center on the St. Paul campus. Retreats are not opportunities for furthering research; in fact, faculty refrain from accessing the Internet or email to focus on writing and revising. Opportunities for individual support during the retreats are available.
