Retreats

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.

Scheduled retreats:

Please let us know if you would like to schedule a retreat for a research team, department, or other group.  CWP offers retreats often on Fridays and 2-day retreats during winter break and in the summer.  At the longer retreats, we often provide yoga and mindfulness sessions.

If a retreat is full, be sure to put your name on the waiting list.
