Writing Retreat

Date: Friday, 9 March 2018

Time: 10:00 - 16:00 

Venue: H112, William Harley Building, Glasgow Caledonian University 

Tutor: Dr Grace D Poulter, Lecturer in Academic Writing, The Graduate School  

Dr Grace D Poulter is a senior 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.


The Graduate School Writing Retreat days have been designed to help you get to grips with writing, by giving you the space and opportunity – away from the distractions of everyday life.

 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 you write, so this is just a guideline, but you should bear in mind that the main purpose of the day is writing as an activity, not research and not reading – these are separate activities for different days. 

N.B.  Please bring your own laptop. 

If need to use a university machine, these can be borrowed, by prior arrangement with The Base at:

There are different arrangements for staff at:
