Do you have a deadline coming up or a piece of writing that’s long overdue? Or maybe some data analysis that just keeps slipping to the bottom of your to-do list?
Alongside everything else that needs to fit in with our busy research lives, it can be hard to schedule devoted time in which to sit, think, and write. The King’s Centre for Research Staff Development at KCL are currently running a series of Virtual Writing Retreats, which are open to researchers at York. They are designed to give you time, peace, and space to fend off procrastination and beat writer’s block. Each session will provide a friendly and constructive environment in which to meet like-minded peers, discuss challenges and work in a focused way using the established Pomodoro technique.
This Academic Writing Month we invite you to bring along your virtual self and dedicate 2.5 hours to writing in a supportive setting with colleagues from institutions across the UK. There will be time to discuss your writing goals and make new connections.
Sessions take place from 10.00-12.30 on the following Wednesday mornings in November: the 17th and 24th
If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title “Virtual Writing Retreats”, and we will send you the joining instructions.
