Thanksgiving Writers' Retreat
Perhaps you plan to write intensely over Thanksgiving break, but staying motivated to write without the structure of a regular schedule can be challenging. You are invited to join fellow writers at the Writing Center’s Thanksgiving Retreat, to commit to write together for a consistent, extended period of time. Every day, we will set writing goals and then review those goals at the close of the session. Writing Center staff will be available for consultation and will provide coffee and snacks. At the close of the Tuesday session, we will discuss our progress and goals over pizza.
Registration is required (see below), and space is limited. All Amherst College students with long writing projects are welcome, but Honors Thesis writers will be given priority. Participants must commit to attend all three sessions in their entirety. If the minimum enrollment is not met by November 20, the retreat may be cancelled at that time. Contact facilitator Jessica Gorman (Writing Associate) for more details.
The retreat will be held in Charles Pratt Common Room, but on the first day, please meet us in the Writing Center for a brief orientation.
Sunday, November 24: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Monday, November 25: 9:00 a.m. - noon
