Please note Lunch will be provided for this workshop
Writing is a huge part of research and yet, as a skill, the focus of training is often assumed to be needed on how to produce scientific papers while retreats tend to focus on blocking out the time and space to write. That’s great and important. What about the experience of writing itself? How can researchers learn to be productive, to keep writing and even enjoy the process?
“Dare to Enjoy!” offers a combination of ‘retreat’ to create space to write and live coaching ‘experiments’ to explore different approaches to the experience of writing.
While working on a current piece of writing (a paper, proposal etc) it aims to explore what happens if you unlock the possibility of enjoying writing! The workshop explores confidence, fears, values, goals and habits while experimenting with different writing moods.
Participants will come away with:
Dedicated writing time on their topics.
Greater awareness of what gets in their way of their writing and how to overcome that.
Learning from others about their writing experiences and strategies .
A commitment to new writing habits.
