Reading and writing retreat for PhD students


Reading or writing with other people, in a quiet and inspiring environment, is an effective way to boost your focus. Our reading retreat last for three hours and starts with a short planning session where we set goals for our reading and finishes with a short summary and reflection. We take breaks together, have some coffee (and fika!) and talk about how things are going.

Bring texts you need to read or a text that you are working on and be prepared to get a lot of work done! The retreats are held in English, but you are welcome to read or write in whatever language you like.

The retreats are open to all PhD students at LUSEM.

Two retreats will be held during the autumn:

  • 25th October 9.00–12.00
  • 22nd November 9.00–12.00

The reading and writing retreats are arranged by Academic Skills Services (ASKS) and the LUSEM Library.
