Event description

Description

Virtual Writing Retreat (VWR) is a community of remote workers who work together on a shared schedule for accountability and support. We come from a wide range of backgrounds, industries and sectors. These include education, public services, researchers, book writers, bloggers, home workers, small business owners, academic writers, post-graduate students and more.

What we share is the desire to increase our productivity and effectiveness in our chosen fields. We have found accountability is a key element for reaching these goals. Others enjoy the social aspect of the retreat as it reduces the feelings isolation that remote working can bring and creates a sense of belonging. Working in this supportive way has allowed us to develop a culture and community where the transfer of knowledge is organic and where tips of best practice are shared freely. This is a core foundation of the retreat.

Therefore, VWR is much more than a writing platform: it is a supportive peer-led community that aims to create a sense of community, develop best practice and help our members reach their potential by empowering and motivating our members to create their best work.

This service is facilitated by VWR moderators who are experienced and knowledgeable writers (PhD). We understand the needs of the community because we started our VWR journey as members and still use the VWR to meet our own productivity goals. We want to share our winning strategy with you.

Review:Curiosity made me join the Virtual Writing Retreat because I knew I needed to focus and commit with other people in order to avoid procrastination. That is key, commitment and this VWR is not specific for one type of writing, you can really choose the task you want. Just think about something you are postponing and you want to get it done. It was surprisingly easy and effective. It works! I will definitely repeat often. Thanks to the organizer!” - Anna P, from Spain

Review: "Great way to dedicate time to writing and also to have accountability and feel less pressure when writing up! Really enjoyed today and I would recommend this to anyone wanting an online writing group" Naomi, from Scotland

FAQ - What happens once I sign up? You will be sent an email on the morning of the retreat asking you to join our online platform, where you will be greeted by one of our moderators. They will support the process throughout the day. ie, introduction, goal-setting, schedule, check-in, evaluation etc

FAQ - How much does this cost? VWR is free! VWR is a non-profit service. However, donations are welcome.

We look forward to writing with you,

Team VWR
