Doctoral School Writing Retreat, TBC, Tuesday, 03. December 2019

Training and developing your writing skills as a researcher is all well and good, but finding the time and space to write is often challenging. Taking place at Riseholme Hall, this retreat is designed to give researchers time away from campus to escape lab work, teaching and other PhD trappings, to focus solely on writing. Whether you use the time to prioritise writing a journal article, proposal, or even your thesis, our academics will help facilitate your productivity. This is your chance to not only develop your writing skills as a researcher, but also encourage motivational skills and 'retreating' techniques to allow yourself space the write. All we ask is that you bring along something in mind to work on, and be open to writing!

Attendance
Once you have booked onto a workshop, you are expected to attend, if you find that you are not able to meet your commitment to attend, you must ensure that you cancel your booking by contacting the Doctoral School at the earliest possible opportunity so that someone else can be offered the chance to attend. Should you fail to attend a workshop without providing a valid reason your supervisor and Head of Department will be notified.
If we find we have to cancel a workshop at short notice (for example, as a result of tutor illness or extreme weather) we will contact you as soon as possible by email using the email address you submitted at booking.
Cancellation of Attendance
The Researcher Development Programme is very popular and for many workshops we have waiting lists of students wishing to attend. Hence, if you book a place on an event you are expected to attend. If you realise that your attendance is going to be impossible you can cancel your booking by emailing the Doctoral School doctoralschool@.
Please do so as early as possible (and at least 48 hours in advance) so that we can offer your place to another student.
