PhD research writing development opportunities

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year we hold many different events for PhD students and staff. This page will be updated as and when these events are available to book. 

If you would like more information on how our events run, what to expect and how to prepare, take a look at our 'What is a Thinking Writing retreat like.docx' document.

Our retreats section also has further information on the thinking behind our events and what to consider if you're planning your own retreat.

Our events are open to QMUL and non-QMUL PhD students from any discipline.

Reviewing & Editing Workshop, 28th November - booking now open!

This combined workshop and retreat is designed for writers who have completed at least one draft chapter of their thesis and want to explore strategies for reworking it both at the micro-level of editing sentences and paragraphs, the macro-level of restructuring sections and chapters, and the tricky in-between bits you don’t know what to with. The day is structured as 30% teaching where the strategies are introduced and 70% writing time where participants can use the ideas on their own writing and have an optional discussion with the facilitator. All taking place in a picturesque National Trust property in Barking. 


More retreats and workshops coming up in Jan and Feb. If you'd like to be kept informed of our events do contact us on to be added to our email list.
