After the success of the first TECHNE Writing Retreat, held at University of Surrey in February, we are delighted to announce dates for the next Retreat to be held once again at Surrey. This is an ideal opportunity for you to escape the pressures of everyday research and work to focus exclusively on a particular piece of writing that perhaps you just have not found the time to do. Whether it is a report, a literature review, a journal paper or a thesis chapter, you will find the Retreat a relaxed but motivational environment in which to think, write, reflect and rewrite. You will be supported and encouraged by experienced Writing Retreat Mentors from the University’s Researcher Development Programme Team and the Writing Skills Teaching Fellow. There will also be academics on hand to give you expert guidance on subject-related issues you might be grappling with.
So, if you need a peaceful environment to write in, help setting clear achievable targets, or even one or two motivation fairies, why not sign up for September’s Writing Retreat?
• This is an intensive two-day course held at the University of Surrey’s campus, during which you will have large blocks of time for writing. This writing time will be complemented by short workshops and sessions with your assigned “writing mentor”.
• It is ideal if you can commit to both days; however, you may register for only one if necessary. When registering please indicate which day you would like to attend.
• Food and refreshments will be provided.
• For those travelling from a distance, we can also provide accommodation on the nights around the retreat.
