Graduate Writing Retreat 02/29 – Writing Center


Saturday, February 29th, from 10am to 5pm

Augustus Storrs Hall, Carolyn Ladd Widmer Wing Auditorium (STRRS WW016) – 231 Glenbrook Road, Storrs CT 06269

Carving out time to do 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 after Stanford University’s dissertation boot camp and the UConn faculty writing retreats, the Writing Center & the Graduate Student Senate are sponsoring a day for graduate students to write. Simply writing in the presence of others can bring a surprising sense of solidarity and productivity. Arrive with the project you are working on, your laptop, and any notes or books you may need. Bring your own lunch, or plan to buy on campus.

Coffee, tea, and a few light snacks will be provided.


Write. Drink coffee. Write more. Feel good about all of the writing you got done.

Funding for these events is generously provided by the UConn Graduate Student Senate.
