The New (or Newer) Writing Center Directors’ Retreat will be at held on June 10-11 at Pendle Hill ( in Wallingford, PA. Angela Rhoe will run this dynamic and interactive retreat. You will come away with materials and strategies, and you will build a support network of other directors in the region.

This two-day event is an opportunity for new/newer writing center directors or graduate students in administrative roles to focus on the nuts and bolts of writing center administration while networking with other local writing center professionals.  This retreat will provide space and time for participants to gather, discuss, support, brainstorm, collaborate, and engage with other individuals who are similarly positioned. 

Retreat topics will focus on concerns or challenges we face when running a writing center.  There will also be open times for participants to bring forward individual concerns for the group to help troubleshoot. In addition to whole group discussion and activities, participants will also have individual time to work on developing their own personalized approaches to our topics.

The cost for the 2018 retreat is $150, which covers registration, room, and three meals for the two days. Space is limited to fifteen participants. We are open to working with participants to make attendance affordable. Please apply!
