Writing Retreat

 

 

At BERA Conference 2017, members asked for a writing retreat especially for those new to conference and publications.

 

This two day event is designed to provide:
• Opportunity to discuss with experienced academics some of the key features of academic writing and how these apply to your topic or field.
• Opportunity for you to engage in feedforward and feedback discussions with peers and facilitators.

The aim of this Retreat is to support members to prepare papers for publication in peer review journals or to prepare book chapters for publication in edited texts.
