COVID-19 update: All our writing retreats are continuing and are currently being offered in an online / remote format until we are able to return to campus.
“This is the third retreat I have attended and I found the time very valuable. The facilitator’s considered and helpful feedback was invaluable in giving confidence to continue with my application.”
“I found it extremely useful. I really appreciated the individual feedback I got from the facilitator, and their comments were very useful. I have since used the feedback and submitted my application.”
We provide a quiet space at either City or Collegiate campus to focus on the ongoing development of your submission. You need to bring your own laptop and use the time away from e-mail and telephone to really make some progress! One-to-one guidance and support are available on any aspect of your draft submission – it could be a content discussion based on rough bullet points or comments on a fully completed draft. Plenty of paper-based resources will also be on hand. If workloads do not permit a full day, then come for just a morning or afternoon but please tell us first! You may book onto these retreats as often as you like.
Please note: to book on to a Writing Retreat you must have attended a Development Workshop within the last 12 months and registered for the TALENT scheme.
