Pringle Bay Academic Writing Retreats

I am running a three- day writing retreat in Pringle Bay from the 14th to the 16th of April 2021. For three days and two nights, participants will present their works in progress and receive constructive feedback from me and from the others attending.

The retreat will begin with my academic writing methodology. Each evening there will be informal discussions around topics of interest to the participants.

A maximum of six participants will be accepted on a first-come basis.

Draft submissions for pre-circulation should be submitted by no later than Monday 5th of April. Drafts are just that – unfinished work – so don’t stress to polish up a more complete version. You may even like to brainstorm a plan – for a book or a paper – and pre-circulate a synopsis and proposed chapters. Or submit a piece about your academic writing issues, which we can discuss together.

The fee of R7000 per person will include three light lunches, two dinners, tea, coffee and muffin breaks. Participants will be responsible for their own travel arrangements, accommodation and breakfasts.

Pringle Bay is 85 kms from the centre of Cape Town and 70 kms from Cape Town International Airport. There are many Bed and Breakfast and Airbnb options in the Pringle Bay area.
