Have you ever wished for your own dedicated writing space in Swem?

The Director for Undergraduate Research and William & Mary Libraries invite you to a Writers’ Retreat in Swem Library. Modeled after the Faculty Writer’s Retreat, the purpose is to give you uninterrupted time to work on your honors thesis. The retreat will provide you with your own reserved study space in Swem, along with food, beverages, tailored programming, and (perhaps most importantly) STRUCTURE.

The retreat will run from April 11-14, 5 pm to 10 pm. Accepted applicants will be expected to work on their theses. A light dinner will be served at 7 pm, allowing for nourishment and networking, followed by brief programs provided by W&M Libraries, Center for Geospatial Analysis, and Writing Resources Center. 

Applicants will be asked about their graduation date, availability to attend, interest in programming, and their theses work. Priority will be given to applicants who can attend most of the days and have concrete, realistic goals for the week.

Space is limited. Interested students should apply by March 25. Click the "More Information" button below to access the application form. Selected applicants will be notified in early April.
