Grace D Poulter, Lecturer in Academic Writing, The Graduate School 

Grace D Poulter is a lecturer in Academic Writing at Glasgow Caledonian University. She is also an accredited IELTS examiner with many years of experience in teaching EAP to postgraduate students in the Scottish HE sector.



Time management is a key component of any successful project. However sometimes we all need a little help in finding the will to set aside time for writing, which is often the least popular activity associated with doctoral study.  

Our writing retreat days have been designed to help you confront this problem by giving you the space and opportunity – away from the distractions of everyday student life – to get to grips with constructing your thesis.  



Please note: Due to the limited spaces available on the writing retreat, booking priority will be given to doctoral students that are in their final year and writing up their thesis.

Please note

Please come prepared:
  • to focus upon a single issue for which you have 4 discrete sections that you will write about in each of the sessions,
  • or with 4 short topics that you will complete in each of the sessions
  • or with 4 activities that will take you through the 4 sessions on a single topic/piece of writing, e.g. 1.  Write, 2.  Redraft, 3.  Edit, 4.  Format and finesse final version. 


  • Of course, no one will be checking what people write, so this is just a guideline!  Although notes are entirely acceptable, loaded book bags and sheaves of articles are not.   The main purpose of the day is writing as an activity, not research and not reading – these are separate activities for different days.
