Oxford academic paper writing retreat for nurses and AHPs
Saturday 22 January - Tuesday 25 JanuaryFree
This three-day online Academic Paper Writing Retreat on 22, 24 & 25 January 2022 is sponsored by the Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), Oxford cognitive health Clinical Research Facility (CRF), the Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery a Allied Health Research (OXINMAHR) and Oxford BRC.
It is open to all nurse researchers and AHPs at any career stage, working at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, OXINMAHR or Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who have a paper(s) to write up for submission to an academic journal and need time and space to focus on this without interruption. Download the flyer for the retreat here.
We ask that delegates who attend commit to the full three days (including a Saturday), and that you come with a clear writing goal and a specific material outcome that you wish to achieve. It is an expectation that all attendees will have submitted their chosen paper(s) to an academic journal within eight weeks of the retreat.
The event will take place online, where there will be an opportunity to write without distraction. Mentor and peer-to-peer support will be available. To enable participants to start writing on day 1, the first mentor meeting will take place between 10 – 14 Jan 2022. You can see the full agenda here.
Apply by midday Wednesday 15 December 2021
- Protected academic paper writing time
- Network with fellow researchers
- 1-2-1 mentor support available
Writers from the retreat in April 2021 share their experiences and what they gained from attending.
“Able to be collegiate without being intrusive. Also, I wouldn’t have been able to go away to do this, so being online has really worked for me.”
“Experienced mentors that are not attached to your topic and able to look at it from a fresh perspective.”
NEW Tutorial on Day Two
To support the academic writers attending this retreat, this year we are introducing a tutorial led by a professional creative writer from The Royal Literary Fund.
