Sometimes we have to get away to sit down and write.  In the past couple of years, small groups of faculty have gone on 2-3 day writing retreats. These retreats were organized to include faculty from multiple divisions, and at different career stages, and made time for reflection and community building as well as writing. If you are interested in organizing such a retreat, email Devavani ( for a consultation.  In addition, the Serie Center will offer a 2 day off-campus writing retreat in Saint Paul tentatively scheduled for late May, 2020.  Watch for an announcement and application in early spring!
