The Sociological Review Foundation is delighted to announce that after the success of last year ECR writing retreat we have commissioned Rowena Murray to deliver another Writing Retreat for social scientist in 2017. We anticipate that this will become an annual feature of our offer for ECRs. You can find out more about Strictly Come Writing at: https://www.thesociologicalreview.com/community/early-career-researchers/ecr-writing-retreat.html
Murray has devised and delivered structured writing retreats to support academics by providing dedicated writing time done in a group setting. To find out more about this approach see: http://www.rowenamurray.org/aims/references/
The retreat is for early career scholars or postdocs (within 3 years of award of doctorate).
The retreat venue will be held in the village of Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, in Scotland. All writing sessions, meals and overnight accommodation for the nights of Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th September are provided. Minibus transport will be provided between Glasgow train station and the hotel. You will be expected to be at Glasgow Central Train Station by 14.30 on Wednesday 13th September for the pick-up.
There are 14 places are available. The retreat will be free of charge to successful applicants, and there are a number of travel bursaries available for early career researchers.
Please note that due to the cost of each place, successful applicants will be required to make a refundable deposit of £50 to secure their place.
