Writing Retreats – Online dates for 2022/23 tbc

Our popular RISES Writing Retreats will be returning from October 2021. For the Autumn term, these will be online events. There will be two MS Teams meetings hosted by Dr Ruth Windscheffel, scheduled at the start and end of the day, where you can ask questions and get general advice about the category of fellowship you are working towards. In the intervening time, you will be invited to write individually. During the day, Ruth will be on hand to comment on sections of draft work and to answer your queries by e-mail. For these events, just book for your chosen day and further details and live session invitations will be sent in due course. From May 2022 onwards these writing sessions will be supported by Jenny Fogarty.

Booking slots for these 2021 events are offered in half-day slots to provide you with maximum flexibility. If you would like to attend for the whole of a day, simply book the consecutive sessions.

Please note that, to participate in these sessions, you need to have attended an introductory RISES workshop so that you know which category of fellowship you are aiming towards, and you need to have formally registered for the programme using the form on the RISES Moodle module.

If you are interested in attending one of these workshops please complete the booking form via the link below. Once this is completed an online event URL will be sent to you in an email confirming your registration and you can add this to your outlook calendar.
