Writing retreats provide time, place, support, and camaraderie to support writing productivity.  Whether at the historic Conley House or another location, this protected time in your schedule will help you set goals and work on your projects but in the company of colleagues.  Coffee, tea, and snacks are usually provided and in most cases lunch. These writing retreats are open to MU faculty, staff, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
