Summer Retreat

And now for something completely different . . . maybe!


As many of you already know, the challenges of diminished budgets and other concerns have been weighing on our minds for the last few years.  This June, we will be holding a discussion/consultation about the future of RopeWalk, but will not be holding the standard retreat.


Please read the linked letter, and correspond with Dr. Spencer with your ideas and suggestions.



The weeklong RopeWalk Writers Retreat gives participants an opportunity to attend workshops and to confer privately with one of four prominent writers. Historic New Harmony, Indiana, site of two nineteenth-century utopian experiments, provides an ideal setting for this event with its retreat-like atmosphere and its history of creative and intellectual achievement. At RopeWalk you will be encouraged to write, not simply listen to others talk about writing. In addition, several writers will present papers or give lectures, open to all participants, on aspects of the craft of writing. For additional information, call 812/464-1829 or 800/467-8600. E-mail inquiries should be addressed to ropewalk@usi.edu.

If you require assistance with seating at a RopeWalk reading, large-print materials, sign language interpretation, or other accommodations to facilitate your participation, please contact Linda Cleek at 812/464-1829 or 800/467-8600 as far in advance as possible.

RopeWalk Writers Retreat is a program of the University of Southern Indiana.
