Faculty Writing Retreat

Are you trying to find time to work on an article or book chapter? Join us for the annual Faculty Writing Retreat.

Each May, the Library hosts this free, five-day retreat on campus for University of Guelph faculty working on scholarly writing projects. You will be provided with a quiet, comfortable, fully wired space, as well as focused time in which to write.

The retreat will offer an opportunity to build a supportive writing group with colleagues from across the university and to join in group discussions on writing and publishing. Individual consultations will also be available.

To participate, you must be working on a specific writing project and be at a stage at which focused writing time makes sense (i.e., finished your research). Participants must also be able to attend all five days of the retreat.

How to Register:

Register online through the Library Events Calendar (registration opens approximately 6 weeks before the event).

Check the Library Events Calendar for these Faculty Writing activities, too:

  • Faculty Writing Room: A room is reserved for a three-hour writing group twice a week. No registration necessary!
  • Faculty Writing Retreat “Light”: Each December during the last week of exams, a room is reserved for faculty writers. Registration will open in November.
