Dissertation on the Lake

DISSERTATION ON THE LAKE, August 25-28 is a four day, three night writing retreat on the banks of Elbow Lake, 30 minutes north of Kingston.  This is a pilot program offered by the School of Graduate Studies to provide graduate students the opportunity to write in a relaxing and inspiring environment, setting aside the distractions of daily life at home. Ten two-bedroom cabins will provide accommodation and some writing space. A central meeting room is available for writing. Three meals a day will be provided.  Space is limited and preference will be given to given to PhD students. Cost: $65/person.

The day will be loosely structured around two writing sessions: three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon (you can always write for longer!)  Although writing will be the primary activity, there will be ample opportunities for relaxation including swimming, canoeing and hiking (all unsupervised).
