Facilitated Writing Retreat Workshops
Following the very positive feedback we got after our first facilitated writing retreat ran last December, The Graduate School is organizing another 5 week programme on structured writing retreats with mini-workshops. Whether you are in an early stage of your research or you are writing up your final thesis, you are warmly invited to come along to this very friendly and supportive environment, have some free lunch and get your research thoughts and ideas written!
You will need to have the wifi off on your devices to help you maximise your writing productivity and minimise the level of distraction. Before engaging with your free writing, you will have a 45 min workshop after which Simone will introduce you to the principles of the Pomodoro technique and let you try it out for yourself with some refreshing breaks in between the sessions.
In the first mini-workshop on 15th March from 12:30 to 17:00 , you will do a practical exercise on critiquing your own writing, facilitated by Prof Ian Livingstone, this will take place on 15 Mar 2018, in Top Lodge Conservatory, Park Campus, please book here .
In the second mini-workshop on 24th April from 12:30 to 17:00, Dr Lorna Jowett will run “Finding your academic voice”. Rather than offering specific techniques for academic writing, or advice on how to write for a PhD, this session aims to engage you in some of the debates about and positions on academic writing—what it is, what and who it is for. If you’ve ever read over your writing and thought, ‘that doesn’t sound very academic,’ this workshop is for you!to book please click here.
