Writing retreats

finding the time, together

Join us to get your writing done, whether it’s a dissertation, book chapter, article for publication, project proposal or …. It should be some writing related to social learning.

You can still join us if you are writing in a language other than English – but you need to be able to tell us about your work in English and ask for feedback from synopses in writing or on video in English.

No distractions.

How it unfolds

Each day includes:

  • Optional morning yoga session
  • Writing sprints: 2,5 hours of writing in the morning and 1,5 hours in the afternoon
  • Check-ins: report out on (1) what you just did, (2) what roadblocks, concerns, or progress you experienced (3) what you are planning for your next writing sprint
  • Feedback sessions: Peer feedback on up to ten pages of writing (or 10 minutes of video)
  • Optional writing exercises, such as “no going back” to get away from the fear of writing imperfect sentences
