This 2 day (overnight) writing retreat provides a communal environment for Women of Color Faculty to engage in productive research writing. The Summer Writing Retreat is a fantastic opportunity to get writing done in a beautiful setting, amidst your hardworking colleagues! You will also have the opportunity to discuss writing tips, connect with others over meals and short breaks, and receive mutual support and encouragement towards meeting writing goals.

What participants loved about our previous WOCAP writing retreats:

  • Everything! The atmosphere, the communal support, the sense of purpose and encouragement of fellow faculty writers.
  • Dedicated writing time amidst the company of like-minded colleagues.
  • The opportunity to get work done without interruption.
  • Opportunity to develop a writing plan for the summer and to effectively meet individual writing goals.

Cost for 2-Day Retreat (includes room and meals listed below):

$90 for a shared room (two people/double occupancy)

$145 for a single room (single occupancy)
