Our Dissertation Retreat Provides: 

Our Mission: At the OWRC, we value conversation and collaboration. We believe that writing is never just writing; it’s working through a difficult set of ideas and figuring out how to participate in conversations. In sessions with peer tutors, there will be a lot of dialogue about your work – thoughtful questions, lively brainstorming, idea mapping, etc. The retreat will provide plenty of quiet writing time, but we’ll also create space for you to talk with and learn from one another. These interdisciplinary conversations have been some of the most positive takeaways for past participants

Application Materials:

In order to apply for a spot, submit your application through our Catalyst site.

Retreat participants will be selected based on our assessment of each applicant’s progress, difficulties, and on our experience of who will benefit the most from our approach.

Note: Participants will be asked to contribute $40 for food and supplies. Need-based scholarships available.
