“[This writing retreat] gave me structured time and support from writing experts, required me to practice goal-setting, encouraged self-reflective work habits, and provided me with a community of like-minded peers. I also benefited specifically from one-on-one consultation. For the first time in years I felt as if my institution was supporting my research agenda in active way. I can’t tell you how encouraging that was.”
Associate Professor of English
“Writing alongside colleagues from across the University gave me a sense of shared endeavor, and the retreat reminded me that writing is a process. If I engage with the natural ups and downs of that process, the publications will come.”
Adrienne G. Perry, Ph.D.
“The faculty writing retreats have given me space to write that I don’t have when I’m in my office, where interruptions are frequent, or at home, since I have two young children. They also inspire me by surrounding me with others who are intent on their own writing. I know I'm not alone in this work.”
