Frequently Asked Questions about our Writing Retreats.
- Make sure you spend a few hours figuring out exactly what you want to write about before heading to the writing session. There is nothing worse than finding out words won’t flow because you have no clue what to write about!
- We encourage you not to use the internet, books or any previously downloaded articles as this is a day specifically reserved for writing. If you need to check something, you can write it down and search for it afterwards.
- When joining online, strive to find a comfortable place that allows you to remain focused for the duration of the session.
You might want to include the following items when assembling your mobile writing kit:
Laptop / Stationary Items
Chargers / Extension Cables
Headphones - use them to cancel ambient noise and even listen to music as long as it does not disturb other students.
Food & Drinks - even though Graduate School will be providing Fika during the breaks, you are allowed to bring your own food and drinks to on campus gatherings.
To make the most out of these sessions we strongly recommend for you to arrive a few minutes earlier, given that the introduction (i.e., warm-up activities & goal setting) is crucial in setting-up the tone for the rest of the session.
If you are a first or second-year student enrolled in any of the master’s programmes offered by Graduate School, you are more than welcome to join any of the upcoming sessions!
Bear in mind that each gathering is organised in accordance with specific course deadlines and thus, joining the one designated to your assignment will give you the opportunity to meet and discuss your work with other students who are involved in similar projects.
