Writing Retreats

One way the University Writing Program provides ongoing support for faculty writers from across campus is through our low-cost Spring Writing Retreats that provide time for individuals to dig into their own projects and/or groups to collaborate on any writing projects they may have.  These retreats are open to all ECU faculty who have current writing project that need some time and attention. Each year, the UWP sponsors up to 10 writers by funding ½ the cost of the retreat; and each writer is then responsible for securing matching funding ($200) from their department/college or for paying the other part themselves.

Since March 2016, we have been writing together at the beach for a few days over Spring Break with marvelous results. If you’re interested in joining us at the Trinity Center in Salter Path, NC, over ECU’s Spring Break to retreat, write, and reflect together, we’d love to hear from you!
