Writing retreat for Northumbria researchers, Monday 23 October 2017

Lots of people have told us how difficult it is to find space and time to write away from their offices. We’ve decided to run a writing retreat day where you can come along and write free from distraction.

There will be a quiet room to work in (with no talking and phones on silent please!) and a space outside where there will be free refreshments and lunch as well as an opportunity to meet and talk to colleagues from across the university. The retreat will run all day on Monday 23 October from 9.30-4.00pm but feel free to come along at the times that suit you best. We don’t care what you’re writing. It can be an article or a grant application or something else related to your research.

Please note that laptops/PCs will not be available on the day so make sure that you bring a laptop or tablet along with you.

For catering purposes and to make sure we have enough seating, please book your place: http://rbscalendar.northumbria.ac.uk/event/3279276

If you haven’t been to the Northern Design Centre before, it isn’t that hard to find nor is it that far away. The address is Abbott’s Hill, Gateshead NE8 3DF. It is a couple of minutes walk from the Baltic. 

We hope to see you there – please forward this on to any other colleagues that may be interested in coming along, regardless of department, faculty or job title.
