IMISCOE SC EduSocial On-line Writing Retreat

13 September 2022

13 October 2022, 10.30am-14.00pm (CET)

 

Writing together to beat the ‘PhD blues’! 

Why a writing retreat?

Inspired by many uplifting writing retreat  initiatives that have been taking place lately, like the SC GenSe’s one, our standing committee is pleased to announce the first EduSocial on-line writing retreat. The aim of our on-line writing retreat is to promote a dedicated slot to academic writing – thesis, articles, projects – in a supportive, creative, motivating, safe and non-surveillance environment. This is an opportunity to focus on academic writing, and at the same time to share its challenges with other peers and be familiarized  with good writing practice. Dedicating some time to writing only is not an easy task, but with a little help from our friends and previous planning for ensuring that the daily endeavors – shopping, housework, last minute appointments – it might be possible (and worth it).  

 

Who can join the SC EduSocial on-line write?

The retreat is an open and free of cost initiative of the IMISCOE SC EduSocial to PhD students and early researcher careers. Scholars at any level are also welcome to attend.
