Online writing retreat Online

Study alongside others in a supportive and focused environment during this two-hour virtual retreat. You choose which task/s you want to work on while getting encouragement from other students and a Learning Adviser. We recommend deciding on one or two SMART (specific, focussed, achievable, relevant, timed) goals to focus on before the retreat starts, but the most important thing is to think of a task you want to start and/or finish by the end of the retreat. 

During the retreat we will:

First 10 minutes: Join the call, get settled, and tell everyone your SMART goal for the next 50 minutes

50 minutes: Work for 50 minutes on your goal. 

Break (10 minutes): Come back to the call and talk with the other participants. 

50 minutes: Continue working on your goal, or choose a new one if you completed it.

Sum up (10 minutes): We will join the call one last time to talk about how the retreat went.
