One-Day Structured Writing Retreat (Application Closed)

Date(s) - 24/01/2020 All Day

University of Leeds


Structured Writing Retreats are facilitated sessions based upon the extensive research undertaken by Professor Rowena Murray (University of the West of Scotland). The aim of the retreats are to use dedicated writing time to progress writing projects in a supportive and non-surveillance environment.

The retreat starts at 09.00 and ends at 16.30. All writing sessions, refreshments and lunch will be hosted in the Beechgrove room. We use most of the time for writing, all of us in the same room. Breaks and lunch often generate solutions to writing problems, develop drafts, lead to research-oriented conversations and provide feedback on writing-in-progress. Please ensure that you arrive in good time to register and set-up as the retreat follows strict timings in order to maximise the opportunity for writing time.

See for information, interviews with participants, copies of articles about retreat, evidence base etc. This one-day retreat will be facilitated by Angela Carradus and Jo Garrick, who have both undertaken facilitator training with Professor Murray.
