Writing Retreats are moving to a virtual format. We want to support our community of writers in staying connected, staying healthy, and continuing our work of knowledge production and dissemination.

Current dates are listed in the Taylor online events calendar, as seen on this page.

Please contact Anna Monhartova at amonhart@tulane.edu to get on the writing retreat list or subscribe to the Taylor newsletter for updates.

Our structured, silent Writing Retreats help all writers write more and connect with other writers. We sponsor one day social innovation themed writing retreats in the New Orleans area.

Faculty, scholars, staff, graduate students, community organizations, and practitioners are invited to attend.

Enjoy a supportive setting built around the “pomodoro method” with 6-8 blocks of silent individual writing, plus breaks, during the day.

What do participants write about?

Scholars with diverse academic backgrounds have worked on their academic articles and conference presentations with social innovation and changemaking themes, including social theories guiding understanding of social innovation for ISIRC, critical perspectives on service learning for changemaker education, sports-based youth development through social enterprise, and lessons learned and best practices in contemporary design education.

Graduate students have worked on thesis, proposals, and dissertations in their fields spanning from global health systems, women’s reproductive health, to art history, NGOs in Latin America, among many others.
