Will you learn to write creatively like me? No. You’ll learn to write creatively like YOU!
  • Have more of your work read by wider audiences; in other words impact.
  • By providing an intense two-day experience the playing field is levelled and opportunities for facilitated learning developed.
  • By engaging in creative writing, it becomes possible for all to write more clearly, more simply, even more creatively, when writing not only for academic publications, but also for outlets previously unimagined.

This unique event isn’t a typical “writing retreat” (with trees to hug and lots of time to ruminate), but a very active experience with exercises, suggestions and supportive feedback on participants’ work from Kip Jones and other participants. 

Students and academics will be encouraged to include more creative writing in their outputs, particularly those whose writing includes reporting on narrative and other qualitative methods of research.  

The workshop will also help with publishing in the wider world of blogs and online outlets, moving work to media and film, auto-ethnography and even fiction.
