Undergraduate Writing Symposium
On Writing is a series of conversations with faculty and other advanced writers at Vanderbilt about their writing practices. Conversations examine writers’ eccentricities and the ways in which a given writer generates ideas, cultivates a style, and responds to various writing situations.
On Writing events are free and open to the public.
“On Writing: Writing Beyond the Academy” – Wednesday, March 21, 4:15pm in Alumni Hall 100
Dissertation Writers’ Retreats
The Writing Studio’s dissertation writers’ retreats are meant to provide dissertating graduate students with loosely-structured time to work individually in a quiet, collegial atmosphere. We couple ample writing time with optional, one-on-one consultations and daily workshops meant to focus writers on their argumentation, chapter structure, and daily writing goals.
We hold an annual week-long retreat during the summer and mini-retreats during fall and spring breaks. Click here for information on upcoming retreats and application details.
