CREATEC Intensive Research Writing Retreat - September

Monday, 15 August 2016


The next non-residential writing retreat will be held on Monday, 26 September - Wednesday, 28 September 2016, at Wollaston Centre, Mount Claremont and will focus on mixing quiet writing time with collegial discussion of both our work-in-progress and aspects of the writing process.

Dr Sally Knowles, one of our Research Development Advisors, will facilitate the retreat. Sally will organise work-in-progress sessions and is available for individual consultations. As noted above, the purpose of the retreat is to provide staff with a quiet, focused environment and professional support in order to complete a significant piece of writing for publication/ submission. To achieve this, you will need to have thought about what you want to write and have done most of the preliminary reading and research.

We are seeking applications for a limited number of places at the retreat. We will give preference to those who are able to attend on all days and who are ready to complete a significant piece of writing for publication/submission that will count as ERA listed publications. This could be:

  • a book chapter;
  • an article for publication in a peer-reviewed journal (which could be based on a thesis chapter or recast from a research report);
  • an external grant application;
  • a conference paper that will be refereed and published; or
  • a creative work that will performed or published.

Applications will also be considered for PhD supervisors who want to write and co author peer-reviewed publications with their students.
