You are onto a big text project and want to enhance your writing productivity? Then join this Monastery-like Writing Development Residence. In the Writing Ashram you practice a monastic lifestyle to write extensively and push your text project forward.The daily schedule consists of physical exercise out in the nature, meditation, inspirational breaks, defined writing times and counselling. This special work environment allows you to deepen your writing process, improve your self regulation, and enforce your writing competence.

Quite ironically, the time for concentration and intellectual contemplation seems to be eroding at universities. Therefore Ingrid Scheruebl and Katja Guenther developed the project Writing Ashram - a monastary simulation for academics located in the countryside outside Berlin.
The new quality in focus and boost of productivity, that come through living in this monastary-like daily structure, away from all chores, with other writers for a couple of days is quite astonishing.
