Who should attend?

No matter what your academic level – from PhD to Professor – or scholarly discipline, writing retreats can be an amazing way to fast track your writing process and extend your network of like-minded scholars. Our retreats have been attended by academics from universities across Australia including: Swinburne University, RMIT, Monash, and Melbourne Uni.

Our retreats are largely unstructured, meaning you can work on whatever you want. Bring along your academic papers, thesis chapters, grant proposals, or book chapters...  anything you wish. It's your time and space to spend as you wish! 

If you haven't participated in a community-style writing session before, and want to see what it's like, you may wish to attend #MelbWriteUp – a free, day-long community writing group held at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.
