Description

Presenter: PGR Presenter, Lynne Elliott (LSTM)





LDC Development are offering a one-day writing retreat on campus to provide PGRs with an extended session dedicate to enhancing their writing practice.

If you are already familiar with our Mini Writing Retreats, then you will know the level of productivity possible during a few hours of a writings retreat. If you are new to the idea of a writing retreat, than this is the perfect opportunity to be introduced to the benefits of coming to a dedicated space without distractions to move forward with your writing goals.


A writing retreat is simply a designated time and space away from your normal workplace where you and others can focus on writing and nothing else. Together we bring our laptops and 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:

‘It got me focused with no distractions and write something down within the short time. Outside the writing retreat, I spend much more time to complete the same task.’

‘The pressure of other people writing and being quiet really helped me focus.’


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.
