Spring Dissertation Writers’ Retreat Poster of Spring Dissertation Writers' Retreat, March 2-3

March 2-3, 2020

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Sponsored by the Graduate School and

the College of Arts and Science Dean’s Office.


Over Spring Break, the Writing Studio will host a two-day dissertation writers’ retreat, which will provide dissertating students with loosely structured time to work individually in a quiet, collegial atmosphere. Graduate students working on masters theses and other advanced writing projects are welcome to participate as space allows. We will couple ample writing time with optional, one-on-one consultations and daily workshops. Lunch and snacks will be provided each day.

Deadline: A link to the application can be found here. Please be sure to complete the application no later than February 7.

Space in the retreat is limited. We use your answers to these questions to select those applicants who seem most ready to benefit from the retreat’s format of loosely structured writing time. Those selected to participate will be invited by February 14 and asked to confirm their attendance by February 21.


The Writing Studio will also host retreats during the summer of 2020.
