May Writers’ Retreat: Applications Close Today!

If you could use 2.5 days of writing in a beachfront location, free accommodation, free meals, expert advisors on-hand, and best of all – no distractions – then you need to act now!

Applications to the next PG Writers’ Retreat on 28-30 May close today. Apply here if you’d like to be considered for a free place on the retreat. All AUT postgraduate research students are welcome to apply, and priority will be given to those in a writing-heavy phase (i.e. approaching submission; preparing a publication; or writing a full research proposal).

Successful applicants will join us at the Vaughan Park Retreat Centre in Long Bay for an intense burst of writing in a peaceful setting. Previous participants have used their retreats to make significant progress on their thesis – click here to see how AUT Masters student Munaal Abdali used a writers’ retreat to break through her writers’ block and add 5000 words to her literature review!

If you have any questions about the retreat, feel free to email the Researcher Education and Development team at
