Composed Writing Retreat

With Michelle Boyd, PhD

May 15 - 21, 2022

Composed is a transformative writing retreat for any scholar who wants to stop writing in fear, and create a
​calm, confident, productive writing practice.

Leave all your worries behind and spend an entire week focused just on you and your writing. Steal away to Elohee Center, where you’ll connect with a group of amazing scholars and together, learn to overcome your internal writing barriers–the thoughts and feelings that undermine your productivity, steal your peace of mind, and rob you of the pleasures of your work.

We work with pre-tenure as well as senior scholars, to help you face your fears and transform your writing time into a haven that motivates and nourishes you.

So you can write more. And worry less.
