PhD, Early Career and Senior Researcher Writing Retreats 2019-2020

With the launch of our new tour experience company: ‘Tiptoe’ ( and years of experience leading the UK Government’s Research Council (UK) funded ‘Vitae’ Researcher Development programme, I’m keen to fuse structured, semi-structured and flexible writing retreats with unique and inspiring destinations to give you a writing retreat you’ll never forget.

Although predominantly for business and management academics (including, for example sector studies like tourism, events, sports, hospitality, transport et cetera), we also welcome other subject specific groups from the arts, humanities and social sciences.

If you’re interested, drop us a line via email: to talk about your interests, requirements, costings and logistics. We will be able to offer a writing retreat you’ll never forget at an affordable rate for different lengths, depending on your requirements. You can also visit for a full list of current writing retreats for PhDs, early career and advanced academics.
