Writing Retreat

CELTSS supports a small group of faculty members to attend an annual writing retreat, which provides an opportunity for each participant to focus on an ongoing writing project. Two writing coaches from the FSU English Department are available to assist you. The retreat is designed to support projects that are sufficiently developed to benefit from three days of intensive writing. Examples might include revising a conference presentation to a journal article, updating an existing unpublished article to meet specific requirements, or preparing a book chapter. Content can be discipline specific or related to the scholarship of teaching.

In 2016, the writing retreat will be located at the Cedar Hill Retreat Center in Duxbury. The accommodations are dormitory-style, with shared bedrooms, dining space and work space. Meals will be reminiscent of summer camp – expect cook-outs, sandwiches and pasta dinners. Faculty who attend the retreat must arrange and bear the cost of transportation, and bring along a laptop. The retreat location is 53 miles from campus and has parking for 16 cars. 

CELTSS provided us with a warm and sharing environment in a south shore paradise. I left feeling energized, accomplished, and happy to be part of the FSU community."
