Start the Semester Off Write!

Monday, February 12, 2018
9:00am – 11:00am

Storrs Campus
HBL Library, Level 2, Writing Center Conference Room

Modeled after our own successful weekend writing retreats and boot camps, but on a smaller scale, these weekly, shorter retreats feature a space to write and an excuse to do it. The Writing Center recognizes that writing in big bursts of energy can be helpful–but that smaller, weekly commitments can develop good writing habits that carry you through the semester. We challenge you to commit to four weeks of early morning Monday writing to start the semester off right. Simply writing in the presence of others can bring a surprising sense of solidarity and productivity. Arrive with the project you are working on now and your laptop, along with any notes or books you need. There will not be any tutoring available or any lectures. Food and beverages are not provided for these shorter retreats. Please bring your own coffee and snacks. Go to: for registration and more information.
