Exclusively for writers, this two-day Digital Detox Writing Retreat features:
- some playing
- plenty of digital detoxing
- a lot of writing
Writing from the comfort of your home sounds romantic, but often it features so many digital distractions: Netflix, Kindle, Phone, Google, Games, Social Media to name but a few.
Glorytells Digital Detox Writing Retreat is about unplugging writers’ brains from the bad habits of home with facilitated activities that focus on play, digital detoxing and lots of writing – whatever writing you choose to do. Perhaps you’re writing a novel, writing a PhD or simply love writing poetry, stories or letters.
It’s all about reconnecting with the real and imagined world – reconnecting with yourself, with other writers, with nature and your work. Return home armed with a collection of activities that you’ve actually tested out – actions that may nurture you and your writing experience into the future.
This two-day Writing Retreat will provide writers with the ideal opportunity to “get stuff done” in a lo-fi kind of way, experiencing the benefits of email curfews, social media fasts and digital time limits.
Glorytells runs its Writing Retreats on beautiful Bribie Island, a handy 70 minute drive from Brisbane’s CBD. Our spacious playquarters are located 200 metres from Kakadu Beach, a waterfront parkland located on the exquisite Pumicestone Passage – a haven for dolphins, dugongs and migratory birds.
While writers are encouraged to participate in all facilitated activities, there is absolutely no pressure to engage in an activity if you are uncomfortable doing so – for whatever reason. You can go off and write whenever you like. You have the freedom!
Digital Detox Writing Retreat are only hosted at Glorytells’ playquarters on Bribie Island.
