Writing retreats: London & Cambridge, 2021

Over summer 2021 we will be hosting a series of two day weekend writing retreats structured around: (a) writing for publication, (b) developing journal writing skills, and (c) developing writing / publication plans. Our retreats are specifically designed for doctoral students & early career researchers studying tourism/leisure & events/festivals.

Each retreat will be led by 1-2 academics & will include: (a) setting writing objectives, (b) structured writing time to work on objectives, (c) 1-1 mentoring & feedback, (d) evening out for retreat dinner & a walking tour, (e) 1-1 advice to develop a detailed writing / publication plan for after the retreat.

Our main objective is to make all retreats highly developmental, supportive, productive, and to help forge new and strengthen existing relationships between scholars in our field, including those who may not typically engage with field networks. All facilitators are fully committed to this ambition.
