This course is for those who want to run Structured Writing Retreats. It’s not a writing retreat, so you don’t need to bring a laptop, unless you use it to take notes etc.. It’s a series of workshops and presentations, using the Structured Writing Retreat timings: start on day 1 at 5pm and finish on day 3 at 4pm. The facilitator is Rowena Murray.
For those who have not been to a Structured Writing Retreat, it is a good idea to attend the Writing Retreat that I run just before this course, but it’s not a requirement.
Writing retreats have long been known to increase and improve scholarly output and research activity. A more recent form, Structured Writing Retreat (Murray and Newton 2009), can develop research capacity and activity. Attending multiple retreats can help to build research and writing into work and life. Consequently, some Deans, Research Coordinators and Heads of Department build writing retreats into research strategies.
This course includes:
Participants will receive four of Rowena Murray’s articles on writing retreats and four books: How to Write a Thesis, Writing for Academic Journals, The Handbook of Academic Writing (co-authored with Sarah Moore) and Writing in Social Spaces.
This course costs £1,000, which covers full board and fee.
The discounted price for those attending both the 1 - 3 April Writing Retreat + 3 - 5 April Training for Retreat Facilitators is £1225, a saving of £100.
