Summer Scholarly Writing Retreat: ALUMNI EDITION

Faculty Write Program, Duke University
Monday, June 1 – Thursday, June 4, 2020 | 9:30am-3pm | Online
Facilitators: Monique Dufour & Jennifer Ahern-Dodson

The Faculty Write Program is pleased to announce the 8th annual Summer Scholarly Writing Retreat. This year, the June retreat is designed for program alumni. Prerequisite: Participation in at least one Faculty Write Program retreat (Engaged Scholar, Summer Scholarly Writing Retreat, academic year retreats in Aug, Dec, Feb.) or active participation in the writing group program. New to the program and want to attend a retreat? Watch for announcements for the August 2020 retreat.

Set aside time for writing. Make progress on a project. Build momentum. Write in community. Retreat includes structured writing time and interactive workshops. We will hold the retreat VIRTUALLY. If possible, we will include optional in-person components. Nevertheless, we will persist together, online.

Like our annual in-person retreat, this virtual edition gives you permission to clear some time for your writing. Even if you are home, you can still retreat. Even if we are apart, we can work in community among colleagues. This retreat is designed to help you to reconnect with yourself, your work, and one another. If you want to spend some time with your writing, the retreat can help you to figure out the best way forward for you. What that looks like will be different for everyone.

Space is limited to 25 participants. The cost for the retreat is $100, and participants may pay by check or by research funds, if Duke affiliated. If the retreat cost poses a financial hardship, please contact

REGISTER HERE. Registration deadline is April 27th, or when the retreat is full. Participants will be notified by May 1st so they can begin to make arrangements. Questions? Contact

This retreat made possible with support from the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences and the Thompson Writing Program.
