Strictly Come Writing: The Sociological Review Early Career Researchers Writing Retreat 2016

Time: Wednesday 14th September, 2016 – Friday 16th September, 2016

Location: Gartmore, Scotland

The Sociological Review Foundation is delighted to announce that we have commissioned Rowena Murray to deliver a Writing Retreat for sociologists.

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 academics at all stages of their career, but we especially encourage early career scholars to apply.

The retreat venue is the Black Bull Hotel in the village of Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, in Scotland. All writing sessions and meals (provided) are in the hotel. Minibus transport will be provided between Glasgow train station and the hotel.

14 places are available. The retreat will be free of charge, and there are a number of travel bursaries available for early career researchers. 

As places are limited attendance will be by application. We invite applications via this online form: http://goo.gl/forms/WB2LDFXPa1

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. ECR means PhD students or postdocs (within 3 years of award of doctorate)
