Retreat Purpose and Process
The focus of our Writing Retreats over the past five years has been “The Personal Statement/Statement of Purpose.” We have found this theme to be valuable, as most agree that this particular element of the Grad School Application can be the most challenging. It is no simple task to blend the unique narrative voices of the academic and the personal!
So, we will continue that theme for the Writing Retreat this year as well. However, it will not be all work and no play. Our opening orientation session will provide an energizing icebreaker through which we will get to know one another. We will also introduce one or two contests (with prizes) we will be having, and provide details about sustenance—we plan to provide a lunch from Doordash each day!
