Saturday Writing Retreat

Saturday, November 5, 2016
10:00am – 5:00pm

Storrs Campus

***advance registration required***

Carving out time to do serious academic writing during the semester can be tough. But finding a place to do it–and a support network of fellow grad students–doesn’t have to be!

Modeled on Stanford University’s dissertation boot camp and the UConn faculty writing retreats, the Writing Center and the Graduate Student Senate sponsor days to write–complete with coffee in the mornings and afternoons, with an optional hour break for lunch. (Feel free to bring your own lunch and snacks.)

The goal of this initiative is to provide a distraction-free environment where participants can write. You should come prepared, bringing your notes, books, and most importantly, your laptops, so that you can spend the two three-hour blocks getting words onto the page. These sessions are not workshops, and no writing instruction will be provided. Go to: for registration information.
