PhD Writing Retreat

November 2, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Led by Dr Helen Kara, this practical workshop will enable you to explore different aspects of the writing process, writing strategies and will be a chance for you to do some PhD writing. It is tailored specifically for Arts, Design & Media PhD researchers in the early to mid-stages of their research. Lunch and refreshments will be included.

Here’s what some our researcher’s said last year:

Helen was so much fun and shared so much with us … she tapped into my most intimate fears about showing people my words and putting them out for (my perceived) judgement. The session …  really helped me understand how a writer’s voice might sound. I began to understand that writing is a skill and it can be practiced.

The workshop was great – I thought Helen’s advice was superb and most importantly it was great to meet people at the same stage of their PhD.

Please note there are limited spaces available. To book please complete the RSVP section below.
