Writers Workshop General Events

This writing retreat will provide structure and community for work that can sometimes feel structureless and isolating. The retreat is ideal for graduate students who are seeking to create or return to a writing routine, make progress and meet deadlines on long-term projects like theses and dissertations, or jump-start a new writing project. Each day will consist of a short goal-setting conversation, quiet writing time, and a concluding reflection and wrap-up. We will also ask participants to practice keeping a writing journal for the week. 


You can still participate even if you're not able to commit to the full week, but please plan to stay for the full writing period each day. Regardless of whether you'll be joining us for the full week or just one day, there's a single registration form. Please register for this event using your University of Illinois email account by 11:59pm on Sunday, August 9. You will receive a Zoom link before 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 10.
