Faculty Retreats & Writing Days



Locate your sources, charge your batteries, and sharpen your pencils! The Kendall Center will host a series of monthly writing retreats. Interested faculty can sign up for a full day – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. - devoted to writing. We’ll provide breakfast and lunch – you provide the inspiration.
