    For busy people, writing projects often get pushed to the end of the line when you’re faced with other daily priorities that cry “urgent.” To help combat this, the CTL Office for Writing, Publishing, and Communication Support will host a writing retreat for researchers and faculty looking for a dedicated block of time to get some writing done. This retreat is not a luxury; it’s a professional necessity, because communicating your work to others is as important as doing it. You’ll be left alone to write, but you’ll also have writing consultants on hand to give feedback or guidance if you need them.

    The Writing Retreat benefits you by:
    • Creating space and uninterrupted time to work on writing projects
    • Helping you boost your writing productivity
    • Providing coaching or feedback from writing consultants
    • Offering the accountability of an appointment to write

    How to prepare for the retreat:
    • Discuss writing project with colleagues or writing consultants in advance
    • Bring paper, laptop, and any resource materials you might need
    • Wear comfortable clothing and bring a sweater just in case
    • Advise friends, colleagues, and loved ones to limit interruptions
