Scholarly Writing Retreats

2020 Scholarly Writing Retreat

May 18–June 12, 2020

The Scholarly Writing Retreat offers Washington University humanities and humanistic social sciences faculty, post-docs and graduate students the opportunity to jump-start their summer writing in a motivated, supportive and collaborative atmosphere, even as we are spread out in our own work spaces while the campus is closed. Participants will work intensively on their individual projects, following a schedule of check-ins, focused writing periods and virtual communal breaks.
