COVID-19 updates: We are excited to announce that the 2021 Writers' Institute will take place April 8-11, 2021. See the UW–Madison Smart Restart website for information on how the university will welcome students back to campus in fall 2020.

This Year’s Writers’ Institute is Postponed


Dear Writers’ Institute Writing Community,

With heavy hearts, the University of Wisconsin Chancellor and Dean have asked us to reschedule our March Writers’ Institute due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will have updated information about rescheduled dates soon.

We are working with our Registration office and refund information will be available soon.

If you have a reservation with the Concourse Hotel please cancel your reservation at 800-356-8293.

While we are so disappointed with not seeing you in March and we hope you and your family stays well. We look forward to seeing you later this year – details to follow.

Laurie Scheer  –
