Writing Retreats and Courses for Academic Writers

‘I did send [my supervisors] some of my writing, the chapter summary, but I don’t think they read it to be honest. However, I also have a new additional supervisor and it was very helpful for me to have some of those pieces of writing to send to her. As part of the writing I changed from two findings chapters to three and they seemed happy with this. It has given me a lot more clarity in terms of moving forward and owning what I am doing and feeling confident in this. I also shared it with a colleague of mine who acts as a voluntary supervisor and who has read some of my other work and she had a much better understanding of where I am going when she read my conclusion chapter and felt she could see great improvement from what she read. I will send them pieces bit by bit, like the abstract etc. and it is great to have drafts of these bits ready to go now’.
