Online retreat – 17th, 19th & 20th April 2021
This three-day online Academic Paper Writing Retreat is sponsored by the Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), Oxford cognitive health Clinical Research Facility (CRF), the Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery and 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.
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 throughout. There will be an online retreat social on Saturday 17th April.
Apply by midday Monday 29th March 2021

Writers from the retreat in October 2020 share their experiences and what they gained from attending.
“The collaboration. It’s great to think that you are all sitting down to write as a community. Sharing ideas and research. I was only able to join the yoga on the final day, but it was a great idea and helped to focus thinking.”
“Improving my academic writing skills – writing better narrative, reflection and revision of my work”
“Protected time out from clinical commitments to focus on research and complete the write up. Excellent mentorship from my allocated mentor”
