About this event

One Day Virtual PhD Writing Retreat

Saturday 3rd September - 09.30-5pm UK time

Writing can sometimes feel lonely. It can be difficult to motivate yourself to sit down and get work done. Join us on one of our monthly one-day virtual writing retreats. They not only help combat the isolation, but can prevent you from procrastinating and help you to get words on the page.

The retreat will involve focused periods of writing, interspersed with group discussions and activities around writing. These discussions will be driven by the needs of the group, giving you the chance to hear from your peers about their writing habits or issues. You’ll have the opportunity to ask the facilitator any questions you have about your writing, as well as talk about common writing problems and receive advice on how to overcome them.

Learning Outcome

The key learning objective of this virtual writing retreat is to learn applied skills and produce substantial pieces of writing.

Throughout the day you’ll have the help and encouragement of an expert writing facilitator, there to answer all your questions and support you as you develop your writing abilities.

The retreat is suited for those who are mid-way or towards the end of the PhD, and although it is subject blind it will be most suited to those in the humanities, arts and social sciences.

Please note: to get the most out of this retreat you’ll need to be in a position to write for a number of hours.

About Your Host

All of the course sessions will be facilitated by Dr Heather Campbell, a Learning Developer, and specialist in academic writing. Heather has helped hundreds of students and academics with their writing, through workshops, retreats, thesis boot camps, individual consultations, and taught sessions. As a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Heather has also developed effective approaches to the teaching of writing and to supporting students in their learning. As well as helping students to write, Heather enjoys writing herself, both in her original area of study, History, and in the field of academic writing.
