Would you like to really get some writing done? But do you find it difficult to motivate yourself? Would you also like some input on writing techniques, questions of style, and the like? Then join our online writing lab. Moderated and coached by a writing trainer, you will participate in a two-week writing challenge together with others. You will set yourself a personal goal and work individually but also have the opportunity to interact with other group members. In addition to this, you will receive daily input to motivate and help you with your writing.

The course language is German and/or English. If there are participants with both language preferences in the group, communication with the whole group will be in English. Individual counseling of participants will be in German or, if desired, in English.

Intended Learning Outcomes

  • You will achieve a self-assigned goal (e.g., completion of a chapter) according to your current writing process.
  • You will be aware of ways to plan, advance, and revise your written work.
  • Supported by individual coaching, you will be able to master specific challenges.

Didactid Methods

Trainer input, individual phases of writing, group discussions, individual feedback


To participate in the online writing retreat, you need a PC/laptop with a current browser (recommended: Chrome) as well as a headset (or speakers and a microphone), a webcam, and a stable Internet connection.
