Write-UP are residential writing retreats intended to provide space and support for colleagues who are seeking to write an article, journal paper, book chapter or another form of publication that is related to some aspect of learning and teaching practice, educational evaluation, or educational research.

This could include something you are currently working on, and which you are seeking space and support to conclude writing. Alternatively it may be something that you are currently in the early stages of planning, in which case the Write-UP writing retreat will provide an opportunity to start drafting your work.

About Write UP

You do not need to be aiming for a peer-reviewed journal article to participate in the Write-UP retreat, although we expect at least some colleagues will be working on publications of this kind. In addition, you could be writing about some aspect of learning and teaching practice, or educational evaluation or research, in FE or HE contexts, or within your own discipline area. You do not need to have any prior experience in writing for publication in learning and teaching, and we will be seeking to make a number of places available to those who are new to this kind of writing.
