Full day writing retreats Full day writing retreats

Writing retreats offer the opportunity to retreat from the demands of academic life with others to a space that is dedicated to writing.

Writing retreats are structured and immersive -typically a retreat will run from 09:00-16:30 and involve a series of fixed slots for goal setting, writing and discussion, and lots of refreshments along the way!

'The retreat felt both sociable and studious'

'I achieved a level of focus that is difficult to achieve on my own'

'My goal was 1500 words. In the retreat I wrote 2000 words. My usual daily amount 1000 words'

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Retreats are open to all postgraduate students but priority is given to research students. To book a place on a retreat please email ask.let@uea.ac.uk

The retreat will take place virtually using the online platform Collaborate which is embedded in Blackboard. Some of you might already have been using Collaborate for online teaching, so may be familiar with how it works. To use Collaborate you will need to use Google Chrome. You can find information on using Collaborate here:

The retreat will take place in 2 blocks: session 1 will run from 10:00 – 12:30 and session 2 from 14:00 – 16:30. You will be able to enter the sessions up to 15 minutes before they start to allow plenty of time for checking your connection and so on. You can stay for as much of the sessions as you would like to, or feel able to depending on your other commitments.
