Words from FY14/15 Scholarly Residents:
Although we sometimes forget it, conducting scientific studies and writing academic papers also requires a passion and creativity..., I had such an incredible experience at ASITW that I plan to participate in a weekly writing retreat annually going forward. In sum, my experience at ASITW could not have been more powerful and fulfilling.

Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology
In my time at the Studio in the Woods, I was able to think deeply and write reflectively on some of the most challenging areas of scholarship that I most need to get to, but are also the most difficult to get to because they require a reflective space. [The Studio] provided this needed sanctuary and retreat from the demands of academic life, to make this important scholarly contribution to the field and provide a framework/plan for my future work.

Assistant Professor, School of Social Work
A Studio in the Woods is a rare and beautiful place to have the opportunity to collaborate with Tulane colleagues and external experts on one of the most difficult parts of research-writing up articles and submitting proposals for publication...the "woods" lends to the atmosphere of production and regeneration so palpable at the Studio.
