COMPOSED: Residential Writing Retreat for Scholars

With Michelle Boyd, PhD

May 17 - 23, 2020

The Composed writing retreat is for any scholar who wants to stop writing in fear, and enjoy a calm, confident, productive writing practice. During this week-long, residential academic writing retreat we teach scholars how to overcome their internal writing barriers–the mental and behavioral habits that undermine their productivity, steal their peace of mind, and keep them from enjoying the pleasures of their work.

We work with pre-tenure as well as senior scholars, to help you face your fears and transform your writing time into a haven that motivates and nourishes you.

So you can write more. And worry less.
