The purpose of our Faculty Writers' Retreats is to 'kick-start' the writing process for interested faculty who are struggling to start, to progress or to finish a coherent piece of work (e.g. a journal article or a book chapter).
The Writers’ Retreat provides a facilitative, supportive environment for faculty to write for publication. In addition, writing as a member of a group, where distractions such as e-mail are minimised, serves as an additional incentive and creates a productive work atmosphere.
Participants are expected to do as much preparation as possible in advance of the retreat so as to maximise time for writing, and each participant should be prepared to share in seminar format something of the struggles and triumphs of their writing process during the retreat. Some structured short seminars, advice on writing and individual reviews will form part of the programme.
