Grad Student Writing Accountability 3-day Retreat

Fall 2024 retreat dates are TBA. Return to this page for more details soon!

 

Maintaining momentum on your dissertation or graduate writing projects can be tough, but making a commitment to structured writing time can help. Writing in the presence of others brings a sense of solidarity and productivity that get you through the complex challenges of large projects. For these reasons, the Writing Center sponsors three-day writing retreats to get serious productivity done.

 

Date and Registration

Activities 

All of the activities on the schedule are completely optional, and you are welcome to come in and out during the day.

Focus Sessions
We use a variation of the Pomodoro Technique. Basically, we set a timer, write for 50 minutes, then take a 10 minute break. The goal of the focus sessions is to set a short and achievable task for yourself and then get it done within the next hour by holding yourself accountable.

Feel free to email gradwriting@uconn.edu with any questions about the event. Hope to see you there!
