Welcome! Thank you for your interest participating in the Faculty Writing Retreat on Colby’s beautiful Allen Island campus. This retreat is a 3-day, two-night experience that will enable you to focus on your own research and writing, jump-start (or finish) a project, gain support from other faculty writers, and help make your summer a productive one.

In addition, this retreat will include two workshops and the option consult individually with professional editor, Kelly Clancy, from Epilogue Editing.

Like all summer programs on Allen island, the Faculty Writing Retreat is a cooperative, “leave no trace” program, which asks that all participants contribute to trip logistics (cooking and basic cleanup) and leave the island facilities as clean and intact as we found them. Island facilities include Wi-fi, a large classroom and many quiet work spaces, beautiful Bunk House with kitchen, and buildings with a mix of private and shared bedroom configurations.
