About the topic

Do you have trouble concentrating on your writing? Do e-mails keep dropping in just as you were about to finish that paper? If you need to banish distraction and focus to chase your PhD goals, a writing retreat could be just what you need! Finally, you’ll have time to start that paper, finish your chapter or revise that report that you’ve been meaning to send out.

The OZSW PhD council is organizing a three-day writing retreat for all OZSW PhD students. For only 50,- euros, you will get a private room for the weekend, breakfast, lunch, 3-course dinners and, most importantly, the solitude to write. As a break, you can take a beautiful walk in the forest.


€50,- per person.

How to apply / register

Please register through (see below). First come, first serve. If there is no place left any more, you will be put on a waiting list, and we will contact you the moment a place will becomes available.

Upon registration, you will be required to pay the registration fee immediately. If you cannot attend the writer’s retreat after all, please let us know as soon as possible, such that another PhD student will be able to attend.
