Weekend writing retreat at Malangen Resort

The weekend writing retreat in Malangen was a great success last Autumn, so we have decided to run it again this semester.

This will be an opportunity for you to work with your peers, discuss your research and socialize. We have reserved accommodation in the beautiful seaside apartments available at Melangen Resort as well as the conference center for us to work in over this period.

TODOS will cover the costs for accommodation for two nights, the conference room hire and transportation to and from UiT, Tromsø. By registering for this event, each participant agrees to pay the remaining cost of maximum 2200 kr per person to cover food costs each day. This is the maximum amount and is dependant on the total number of participants that attend. These food costs include conference center snacks, 2x hotel breakfasts, 2x buffet lunch and 2x three-course dinners. Due to that this is an academic event you may be eligible to reimburse this cost through your project funds (or annum). Please talk to your department for how this may apply to you. You will receive a receipt upon paying at the resort to use for this.

Spaces are limited and filled up fast last time, so if you are interested in joining for the full duration of the event, please fill in your information below no later than 12:00 on the 6th of May . You will receive an email confirming your registration and further details after signing up. All registrations exceeding the limited spaces available will be put on a waiting list.

Travel info:

Friday 20th May, 14:00 departing from UiT, Tromsø by bus.
Sunday 22nd May, 15:00 leaving Melangen resort with expected arrival at UiT (latest) 17:00.
