33 of our students took part in a 3 day residential Writing Retreat at the Ammerdown Retreat Centre in Radstock, Somerset, this summer.
The aim of this Writing Retreat was to bring all 3 cohorts of ART-AI students together, away from their normal environment, allowing them time to focus on their writing for 3 days. Our 2019 Cohort (Cohort 1) are thinking about writing papers, our 2020 Cohort (Cohort 2) are coming to the end of the first year of their PhD research and are focusing on their Confirmation Report, while our 2021 Cohort (Cohort 3) are coming to the end of the MRes year and are focusing on their Interdisciplinary Thesis Formulation Report.
The event was very well received by all, with one of the attendees saying “It has been a great 3 days. I have done more in the last 3 days than I would have done in two weeks at home!”
