Staff Writing Retreats for this academic year

Why come on a writing retreat? Writing retreats provide you with dedicated time and space away from the multiple demands of work to focus on your research or work-based writing projects.

The retreat is structured into writing blocks with task setting and review conversations interspersed throughout the day. Staff frequently talk about how productive the retreats are; but as important is the time spent with colleagues, sharing experiences of writing, exploring new strategies and reconnecting with your work.

The dates for this year are:

  • Friday 1 November, Rees Hall Boardroom
  • Tuesday 14 January, Rees Hall Boardroom
  • Wednesday 4 March, Rees Hall Boardroom
  • Wednesday 13 May, Rees Hall Boardroom 
  • Tuesday 7 July, Nuffield Annex

Writing Retreats can be booked on Eventbrite

If there are no places left, please email who can put you on the waiting list.
