Summer Faculty Writing Retreats

Hosted by the Office of the Provost

This summer the Provost’s Office invites you to join your fellow faculty in a community of writers. The summer faculty writing events offer a time and (in-person or virtual) place to work on whatever you want, be it scholarly projects, teaching materials, or creative or personal writing.

All Virginia Tech instructional faculty (tenured or tenure-track, collegiate, continued appointment or continued appointment track, research, extension, clinical, instructors, adjuncts) are invited to participate.
