Past participants

lunch discussion by hunker participantsSince 2009, the Center for Writing has engaged faculty, researchers, and instructors from across the Twin Cities campus in week-long Summer Hunker writing retreats. Each year, Hunker alums serve as co-leaders of the program—joining Center staff in reviewing applications, securing the retreat space, planning and leading writing activities and discussions, and being “on duty” as writing consultants and timekeepers for their peers.
