This online workshop gives participants the opportunity to think about their approach to writing in a quiet, structured and supportive atmosphere. The workshop will be facilitated by Pam Lock from the University of Bristol, who has experience as a researcher and a retreat leader. The day is broken down in to carefully planned blocks of writing, some short, some long, so that participants can explore different approaches and discover which they prefer.
The six-hour workshop enables participants to
· set short term goals for a day’s writing and monitor their progress against the goals,
· experience the value of short bursts of free writing,
· experiment with different lengths of writing time, to see which suit them best,
· get ahead with a writing project, particularly if this project has ‘got stuck’, and
· discover the value of building stretching exercises into a normal daily work pattern.
Participants need to arrive 'ready to write' and need to bring any materials (books, data). There will be some short discussions on good writing practice and how to approach your writing as a professional task but the vast majority of the day will be devoted to writing without distraction. To this end, there will be no internet, no mobile phones, during the writing periods.
