Description

Presenter: PGR Tutor, Lynne Elliot, LSTM


** available for bookings from Friday, 10 January 2020


Often the most challenging aspect of thesis writing, or any other writing for that matter, is finding the time and space to sit down and focus on doing the actual writing. A writing retreat is simply designated time and space away from your normal workplace where you and others can focus on writing and nothing else.

LDC Development hosts regular retreat session for up to 24 people. Together we bring our laptops and collectively write together in order to accomplish our writing goals. The retreat provides protected academic writing time for you. We sit together in a room and use peer accountability to help us avoid the distractions of email, social media, the internet, impending meetings, tea making, paperclip sorting, desk cleaning, lab work, or any other procrastination techniques you’ve been employing in your everyday working practice.


Previous participants have said:

‘I found that without interruptions, my productivity went up.’

‘I have had trouble focussing on my work recently and feel that attending the workshops would make me set aside time for writing/planning my project.’

‘It enabled me to work better on my writing tasks as I had peers around me doing the same thing in a quiet and conducive environment.’



This session offers opportunities to gain skills/behaviours outlined in the following Researcher Development Framework (RDF) subdomains: A3 Creativity, A2 Cognitive abilities, B1 Personal qualities, B2 Self-management, B3 Professional and career development, D2 Communication.
