Writing 'Re-Treats'

In conjunction with Bethan Garrett from the Faculty of Education we are delighted to announce, because of their continued success, we are once again able to host a series of bespoke ‘Writing Re-Treats’ to support you with your writing! Designed to support all staff (including those preparing for publication or conference presentation, PhD candidates, GTAs and those completing Module THE7003 on our PGCert) previously sessions were held in the Lodge (CLT) with free tea and coffee available, but sadly at the moment until we are advised otherwise we are unable to offer physical events, so are continuing with our virtual activities!

These workshops are designed to be flexible, hence there is no need to book, and you can drop in and out of them at any time during the day.

Structure:

  • There is no need to register
  • You can join in at any point during the day.
  • During the day please make sure you take regular breaks… stop and have a short walk and grab some fresh air!
  • Remember to tweet pictures, please tag @CLTatEHU and @EHU_FOE, and of course please tag in any other twitter addresses you wish. Maybe share what you are working on, and if you would like to hook up with a friend for a #virtualcoffee!

If you need any additional help or support please get in touch, you can email clt@edgehill.ac.uk or email us direct.

Kindest Dawne and Bethan
