Writing Retreats at Lacawac

May 5 - August 10

Writing Retreats at Lacawac Poster

Writing Retreats at Lacawac are for academics, PhD students, and other professionals. They offer you the possibility to concentrate on thinking, reading, and writing in a sustained way. Recharge your battery and gain new inspiration.

It’s for individuals and groups. Let original new ideas be born, maybe even ground-breaking ideas for new projects, and let your writing flow. Ideal for spending (part of) your sabbatical, (re-)writing research proposals, working on a book, conference papers, articles, chapters, inaugural lectures, educational programs, working on joint projects, etc. For PhD students it is a good opportunity to give a boost to your dissertation in a short period of time. Rediscover that writing a PhD thesis can progress smoothly… and it’s fun.

You’ll have a comfortable, private rustic room in the Historic Watres Lodge or the Ice House with WiFi, quiet time, various working station locations, and access to 550 acres of Lacawac’s forests, more than 9 miles of hiking trails, and one of the southernmost protected glacial lakes in the United States: Lake Lacawac.

Information on restaurants, grocery stores and other conveniences will be provided when individuals are accepted for a residency. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact them. The staff of Lacawac Sanctuary will do everything in their power to make each writing retreat at Lacawac inspired, productive, and rejuvenating.

2024 dates are May 5 – 11, June 9 – 15, June 16 – 22, and August 4 – 10.
