Writing Support for Researchers

An overview of writing support for Researchers, including Researcher Writing Hours, Writing Retreats and Writefest

We offer a number of writing sessions to support researchers with their academic writing, these include Researcher Writing Hours and Writing Retreats, along with taking part in the annual Writefest

Researcher Writing Hours and Writing Retreats are designed to provide dedicated time to progress writing projects in a supportive environment. Example projects include, book chapters, journal articles, research proposals and reports. 

These sessions will include a 5-minute check-in at the start to allow you to share hints and tips (optional) and to focus on what you want to achieve in the session, the remaining time will be dedicated to writing.

Theses sessions are not writing workshops, they are simply a dedicated space and time to write.  Participants should come to the session with an idea of what they are going to be working on.

This 1-minute video covers what the retreat session will, and won't involve: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcR47DpBgfQ
