Do you want to come and get some writing done in January ? This two-day residential writing for publication retreat, supported by Advance HE and facilitated pro bono by Sally Brown and Phil Race on behalf of the Association of National Teaching Fellows, will be an opportunity for anyone who would like opportunity to be supported in writing for publication. Anyone can book onto this event, SEDA member or not, NTF or not. It costs £350 for meals, one nights accommodation and support.
For people who just want a bit of quiet time in lovely surroundings with great food, it's a super opportunity to come along and initiate, work on or finish a writing project, alongside like-minded colleagues.
The small group optional facilitated elements include short workshops on topics including thinking through why and where you want to publish, getting past writer’s block, targeting your work for journals (and increasing your chances of success) and co-authoring. These are particularly useful to anyone who is just starting to write about learning and teaching and could do with a bit of help getting going. If you have colleagues in this situation, please do encourage them to come!
