Day-Long Saturday Writing Retreat10:00am
Saturday, January 25th, 2020
10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
Storrs Campus Augustus Storrs Hall, Widmer Wing, Rm.016***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 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 laptops, so that you can spend the time getting words on the page. These sessions are not workshops, and no writing instruction will be provided.
We encourage you to stay all day, but half-day tickets are available, too.
