Event Details

Write here, right now! offers a combination of ‘retreat’ to create space to write, Domain Band live coaching ‘experiments’ to explore different approaches to the experience of writing.

It aims to explore what happens if you unlock the possibility of enjoying your writing.

Key areas covered will be:

  • keeping motivated in your writing and managing the things that get in the way
  • finding the right mood and strategies to keep writing even when you don't feel like it
  • identifying what you are committed to in your writing

You'll also come away having spent some focused time writing for your PhD.

Previous participants learnt:

“Probably one of the most important days I have spent in my PhD so far”

“What holds me back from writing and what things I think make me put it off so much”

“To keep inspiration at the heart of the PHD process. To stay awake to the process of writing – attending to what works and what doesn’t”

“Prepare myself to be physically and mentally ready to be able to use the working time more efficiently”

“I think in general a lot of PhD students have forgotten that writing is a tool to formulate ideas. This session really busted that open for me and I am much more positive now about my work as a result”
