This four-day writing retreat will provide the time and space to finish that final push on your dissertation before the spring semester begins. Join other graduate students in this coffee-house style setting dedicated to staying focused and accountable on graduate writing goals. Reserve your spot today.


Open to all graduate students. Spots are limited, so make sure you reserve your place today!


A quiet time and space dedicated to writing. Students work on their dissertations, theses, or publications. We will be joined by a writing consultant from the Writing Center. You can sign up for a one-on-one appointment with them to go over issues you are having from style to content. We will also pair you up with a writing partner to keep each other accountable with peer review. Due to the popularity of our retreats in the past, we are now adding a morning and an afternoon session. Breakfast is served for the morning and lunch is served for the afternoon. Coffee and hot tea are provided at both. 


In the CASE building on CU Boulder's Main Campus. 


From Monday, January 6th to Thursday, January 9th. The morning session is from 8 am to 12 pm and the afternoon session is from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm. 


Winter break is a great time to dedicate your energy to your writing goals, but writing in isolation when your adviser and colleagues are out of town can be difficult. Having a community of support to encourage you through your writing, as well as a space to get out of your house and write has helped hundreds of other graduate students accomplish their goals


Make a commitment to show up on all four days. Sign up. Show up at CASE on January 6th and get your work done! Keep your commitment and show up even when you don't feel like it. It's free food, after all!
