PGR Festive Writing Retreat - Day 1
"The best way to get something done is to begin!"
We all suffer from putting things off, and, whatever stage you are at with your thesis writing, we know that many of you feel this way about putting words on the page. So, in direct response to your feedback asking for support in making progress with your academic writing, the Doctoral College is running regular PGR writing retreats.
So, what's it all about? Developed in direct response to PGR concerns and comments about making progress with their writing, the retreat provides a "quiet space" for postgraduate researchers to focus and make progress with their writing. There is a facilitator throughout who starts things off and provides support during the session, but in principle, it is for PGRs to come with a set goal for their writing and to get on with it.
