Call for Applications: CFDE Faculty Writing Retreats


Deadline to apply:  Tuesday Sept 6, 2022

Four CFDE Faculty Writing Retreats Announced for 2022-23

Apply here

The CFDE will offer four faculty writing retreats in the 2022-23 academic year.  The retreats vary in length and format. All regular, full-time faculty members (both tenure and non-tenure-track) are invited to apply.

The structure of the retreats will be flexible to allow participants to "take what they need" from the experience: long stretches of writing/focus/deep concentration time and little else; work with a writing coach to develop a sustainable and productive writing practice; or focus on building a writing practice within a community of other faculty writers and establish a writing group. 

Participating faculty must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All participants must also be able to commit to attending the entire retreat. All expenses will be paid except for transportation to and from the retreats.

Space is limited; participants will be selected by the Office of the Provost. (On the application form we ask that you rank your preferences among the four retreats offered in 2022-23.)

The application deadline is Tuesday, Sept 6, 2022. Applicants will be notified of selection status no later than September 13.
