Writing helps us to go deep inside, to re-discover ourselves, and to process our experience. Sometimes writing is so intimidating though. So here we go: a marathon to push ourselves to just write… don’t think about it, just observe what comes out of it!

Our experience using this technique:

We have used this technique to evaluate our annual conference. The writing marathon helped our participants to surface what they had been reflecting on during the conference. It also helped us share deeper thoughts with our colleagues – by doing this, it sparked more vulnerable conversations within our team.

Research and Development:

Why is it important for the community’s development?

Thanks for your support.

    Exciting and powerful methodology that allows participants to reflect and bring to surface pertinent issues in their lives and their collective. I highly recommend it for community, association or organisational annual forecasting or visioning.
