Writers Rooms and Retreats

The Grad Center collaborates with campus partners to provide graduate students with the space, structure, and encouragement to make progress towards completing major research-related writing projects. 

Graduate Writers Rooms

The Grad Center collaborates with partners across campus to host 3- to 4-hour "Graduate Writers Rooms" during the academic year. Writers Rooms provide current Penn graduate & professional students with time, space, and a supportive environment for focused writing. Attendees are provided with snacks and basic supplies. 

Please visit our events calendar to see upcoming sessions and register!
