Organising an Event with OCLW

Are you organising an event related to life-writing? Do you think your event might benefit from association with OCLW?

OCLW can provide a variety of levels of support for an event related to life-writing (an "OCLW Hosted Event"):

  • holding a multi-day conference at OCLW, Wolfson College, Oxford
  • creating a webpage for the event
  • financial assistance (up to £200; priority will be given to events held at OCLW)
  • use of OCLW's secure online payment facilities for payment of registration fees (via the University Stores) 
  • use of OCLW's financial facilities, for accepting cheque payment of registration fees, and for arrangement of payment of invoices relating to the event's costs
  • limited publicity

However, it is important to note that overall administrative responsibility for OCLW Hosted Events remains with the convenors. We request that the event is then described in all publicity as "taking place in association with OCLW", and that appropriate thanks are made.

If you are interested in this prospect, and wish to apply for any type of support, please first download the form on the right and outline your proposal, and then email it to OCLW. Please do not contact OCLW before having submitted a form.

Mixed Circuits
Tuesday 21 January - 6:00pm to 7:15pm

Mixed Circuits are organised by the Boat Club and run every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 PM all year round in the Games Room. Free and open to all members of college, the sessions are great for rowers keeping fit in the off-season, as a supplement to regular training, or for non-rowers who want to get a bit of exercise while seeing the enthusiasm of the Boat Club first-hand. The workout consists of a few sets of “body-weight” exercises, including crunches, press-ups, squats, etc.
