Writing Retreats

Writing retreats (3 to 5 days) can be arranged for groups of up to 16 participants. These are organized residentially and offer a dedicated space for researchers to explore their writing in a group. According to the needs of the group, a specific theme can be addressed within the retreat with teaching input from Dr. Patten, or a traditional, open “workshop” format can be used in which participants present and discuss their own writing. In all cases, emphasis is placed on gaining insights into writing and publication that can be taken forward in participants’ work outside of the retreat.
