Writing Retreats and Courses for Academic Writers

You facilitated a workshop many years ago at my university, and this was very transformative for me. One of the reasons was that you encouraged freewriting. This enabled me to revisit how, as a child, I had learned to physically write what I was thinking by putting pen to paper. I find handwriting very liberating, as the barrier of the machine (computer) can often reduce the flow of my cognition as I get distracted with formatting etc. You validated and legitimised this approach, and it has been a saviour when I get stuck in some tasks.
