This two-day virtual writing retreat provides postdocs and fellows with dedicated time, peer review and advice to work on a piece of writing such as a fellowship application and/or a paper. The writing retreat will enable you to:  

  • Dedicate two full, consecutive days to focus on a piece of writing 
  • Set a series of writing goals that you wish to achieve and work towards them during the retreat 
  • Identify and put in place strategies to eliminate distractions (e.g. procrastination)
  • Work alongside your peers in a motivating and supportive environment

We are currently offering 20 places on a first come basis. If you would like to attend you will need to be able to attend both days.

Note: If applying for a fellowship, this might be a good time to initiate discussions with your host department to secure departmental approval and support as well as clarify the departmental processes in submitting fellowship applications.
