Scholarly Writing Retreats

2023 Scholarly Writing Retreat

May 22–June 2, 2023 (no meeting Memorial Day)

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. Participants will work intensively on their individual projects, following a self-determined schedule of focused writing periods and communal breaks.
