Mason Institute Writing Retreat
Jun 28 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Are you facing writer’s block?

With the multiple demands of academic life, do you have trouble making time for your writing?

Would you welcome support in warding off the mighty distractor that is the Internet?

Writing is hard work and is often relegated to the bottom of our to-do list. Mason Institute (MI) organises a fortnightly writing retreat modelled on the Institute for Academic Development’s writing boot camps: a day of writing, away from wifi and phones, and organised around dedicated writing blocks and breaks. The MI Writing Retreats are open to all. If you would like to join our mailing list, please email Agomoni Ganguli Mitra at Agomoni.Ganguli-Mitra@ed.ac.uk stating your interest.
