Online writing retreat

March 1, 2021 - March 26, 2021

Online writing retreat

Write with peers and critical friends
4 weeks

Approx 6 hours per week

Inspiration and support in your writing project 

Retreat overview:

It can be a struggle to write alone, whether you are working in a book, a thesis, an article, or a project proposal. So, we decided to organize an online writing retreat. To make sure we have plenty of time to focus on each person, we are keeping the group very small this first time – up to 6 participants.

If you join us, you’ll be among a small group of people facing a writing challenge and ready to o act as critical friends and help each other move forward, set goals, and celebrate mini wins. It is also a time for joint reflections on what’s working and what’s not, for looking at your project through a fresh set of eyes, and for gaining some creative inspiration.

Retreat outline:

The retreat is a mix of synchronous conversations (e.g., on Zoom) and asynchronous interactions (e.g., in a discussion forum). You create your own room in our shared online space, where you can invite colleagues to see something of your writing and to engage in chatting or thinking with you.

We all meet synchronously for 2-3 hours a week. The rest of the time is for individual writing, working in pairs or small groups, and personal reflections.

Week 1 – Getting into writing:

    • What I am working on
    • What I am trying to achieve in this retreat
    • What kind of help I am seeking

Week 2 -3 – Writing and peer coaching

    • Whole-group sessions
    • Small-group interactions

Week 4 – Reflections and next steps

    • What I have achieved
    • What I have learned
    • Where I am going next

Your commitment is to join the eight whole group sessions, be working on a piece of writing, and submit a chunk of reasonable length for friendly critique by the group. Individual writing and participation in small-group interactions are self-managed.
