Writing Retreat

MAI ki Pōneke May 2015 Writing Retreat

From Friday 15th to Sunday 17th MAI ki Pōneke held a writing retreat at the Big Bach in Raumati on the Kapiti Coast. It was a weekend of concentrated writing in 1.5 h blocks that included 3 x 25 minutes writing and 5 minute breaks in between using the Pomodoro technique. We were catered for by Helen’s Kitchen and stayed at the Big Bach. After wild weather delayed our arrival, we ended the retreat with a brilliant sunset! Recent graduate Dr. Meegan Hall presented to us about ‘Choosing a Theory’ which helped us ground our research. Those who attended were at all stages of the PhD process.
