Do you need some quiet time and expert support to help you get through a period of intense writing? If so, you may like to apply for the next Graduate Research School Postgraduate Writers’ Retreat on 10-13 May 2021.
To apply, fill in the online application form here by Friday 26 March. We recommend that you include an endorsement from your supervisor (which will need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org) so you will need to request that in advance of the deadline.
Successful applicants will spend 3 nights and 3.5 days at Vaughan Park Retreat on beautiful Long Bay beach. Accommodation and cooked meals will be provided free of charge, and writing advisors will be onsite to run group sessions and provide one-to-one support.
Competition for places on this retreat will be very tight, because last year’s retreats had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. Priority will be given to those who were accepted to a retreat last year, but could not attend.
For those who were not offered a place last year, you’ll have the best chance of being accepted to the retreat if you:
- are in a writing-intensive phase of your thesis;
- clearly demonstrate in your application how the retreat will benefit your writing; and
- get an endorsement from your supervisor
So get going with those applications, and drop us a line at email@example.com if you have any questions!
