Call for application open for a special writing retreat, titled “Wondering and Wandering: Writing Paths Towards a New Economy”, which will be taking place in Lia Gård, Norway, from 12 to 16 June 2024.

It is envisioned as a learning-by-writing workshop to stimulate reflections on how to transform relationships with others and the world, while addressing economic, environmental, social, and political challenges of current times. In the retreat we encourage the participants to develop on-going writingprojects (e.g. creative writing, poetry, book chapter, article, etc.), or initiate new ones, in an inspiring location (the heart of Norwegian forests, 240 km from Oslo) and in a creative format. The retreat combines silent focused writing sessions (for an overall 13 hours) with inspirational talks, walking in the forest, bonfire sharing sessions, close contact with the natural environment and meditation.

We aim to attract a diverse audience, including scholars, writers (both professional and amateur), students, and anyone intrigued by writing as a means of inquiry and exploration. We are interested in engaging with anyone who recognizes the transformative power of narrative and views writing as a profound undertaking deserving dedicated and focused time.

All the details on the project, including speakers, timetable, costs can be found at the following link:


Participation grants are also offered. The deadline to apply is March 31st.
