UR Writing Retreat - 9/11-9/13, 9am-2pm
To register for the UR Writing Retreat, please submit this form. Registration is limited to 15 participants. If we've reached the limit, you will be added to the wait list; we'll email you if this happens.
A deposit of $20 is required for participation in the writing retreat; please pay your deposit in person to Alina Denham (SMD, Public Health Sciences). To arrange to drop off your deposit, email at
. We can accept cash (exact change, please) or checks. Deposits are due September 5. If deposits are not paid before this deadline, your spot may be filled.
This deposit will be returned in full upon completion of the requirements, which include progress towards personal writing goals and attendance all three days. We collect deposits for two reasons: to ensure attendance and to create accountability to yourself as a writer. Deposits that are not returned to participants will be put toward supplies for future writing retreats.
If you register and pay the deposit, but do not attend the writing retreat, please understand that your deposit may be kept. If, however, there are extenuating circumstances, or we can fill your spot with someone from the wait list, then your deposit may be returned.
Once you begin attending the writing retreat, you have made a personal commitment to yourself and the community of writers at UR Writing. Your deposit represents this commitment. If you are absent or repeatedly late, your deposit may be kept.
