Get a head start on your grant applications, or finally finish that thesis chapter, by joining our free virtual writing retreat! This is the first of two writing retreats that we will be holding this summer.

This event is open to academics and final year post graduate students at any Welsh HEI. The structured writing retreat format will involve exercises to overcome "blank page panic" and writer's block, as well as quiet writing time. Periods of writing are broken up with extended breaks to maintain productivity, and reduce burnout. Cameras and mics are switched off during writing time.

Regularly joining these events can help you accurately estimate your writing productivity, which in turn will help you manage your time and set realistic writing goals.

Even if you've been to one of our retreats before, you're welcome to join again, however, places are strictly limited, so please register to guarantee your place. If you can no longer attend, please let us know, so we can give your place to someone on our waiting list.
