This event is designed for postgraduate/research students who are working either on finishing a journal article for publication or those who are writing a thesis. This activity aims to provide these students with an opportunity to focus on the writing component of their research, in a structured, collaborative environment, away from the usual distractions of their routine scholarly life. As a writing-focused activity, sessions over the course of four and a half days will include a pre-retreat workshop by a team of learning advisors from the UQ Student Services led by Dr David Rowland. The topics to be discussed will range from writing effectively and turning papers into a thesis, to incorporating tables and figures, and references effectively. During the retreat, participants will be allowed to have “free writing” sessions, and give oral presentations of their work to the group for sharing of feedback.

Dr Rowland will be providing a post-retreat seminar to give special advice to the students. A guest academic will also give a talk on his experience as an editor in Journals.

Group activities will also be held during this retreat to set a fun and relaxing atmosphere and to build connections among members.

Take note that a maximum of 30 people are welcome to join the retreat so register and secure your slot!
