A 3-day PhD Writing Retreat for PhD students at Crêt-Bérard in Puidoux (VD) (https://cret-berard.ch/en/)

The objective of these three days is to provide room, space and support for participants to maximize their efficiency in scientific writing. Ample time for individual writing will be coupled with personalized instruction and individual coaching. Depending on the group's needs, group instruction is also an option, but the focus will be on individual writing time and one-on-one support.

The writing retreat will thus include theoretical and practical aspects of writing, providing a maximally supportive atmosphere for the participants. Ample material will be available for course work and for personal coaching.




Priority will be given to participants who are in the final stages of their PhD and/or are in the process of writing a publication or their dissertation.


Participants must submit a sample of their current writing (2-3 pages, unedited) two weeks before the beginning of the Retreat. This will represent the point of departure for the individual coaching for each participant. Group and individualized instruction will be provided based on participants’ current writing needs. More specific information on what to submit will be provided in July 2024.
