Writer’s Retreat: Whitby, Yorkshire

March 18 - March 20

As part of the ongoing development opportunities provided by NINE DTP , we are looking to run a writing retreat at Raven Hall Hotel, near Whitby. The venue, where all catering and accommodation needs are included, provides a picturesque and relaxing environment. For DTP students all funding (including travel) will be provided by the DTP. Previous PhD students engaged with the process have commented that the space to focus on writing was greatly appreciated.

This course is primarily aimed at award-holders who are currently writing-up.

If you’d like to put yourself forward for a place please contact postgraduate.training@durham.ac.uk in the first instance. Please only book on if you’re available to attend. There are twenty spaces available, which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Writing Retreat Details

There is growing evidence that writing retreats enhance research output. By providing an environment where all needs are met, and time is given over to silent writing and feedback from peers, many universities have greatly increased their research productivity. Given the priority placed on writing we would recommend bringing downloaded copies of papers and materials you need to the event, to save time web searching for data during the writing time.

If you have any queries or questions don’t hesitate to contact Sam Nolan s.j.nolan@durham.ac.uk
