Writing intensive workshop (with Helen Kara) – postponed

March 19, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


Sadly, we have had to postpone the writing intensive workshop.

This is a precaution, related to the ongoing situation with COVID-19. We hope to reschedule this as soon as we can.

Are you an Arts, Design & Media PhD researcher in the mid to late stages of your PhD and working hard on your thesis? Then come to our one-day Writing Intensive day facilitated by Dr Helen Kara. Whether you’re stuck in a writing rut; need some writing motivation; or everything’s going fine and you just want to get on with writing your PhD, this day is for you!

The day will include group half-hour writing sessions, with breaks in between, plus opportunities to discuss academic writing with Helen and your fellow students. Participants are also invited to join Helen for a drink after the intensive to celebrate their efforts.

Here’s what one of our researchers said:
I often feel my writing is not ‘academic’ enough, and I feel this stops me from even starting! There was a great balance between fun exercises, useful discussions … interspersed with serious concentrated bouts of ACTUAL WRITING!! Reading back over my output from the day has certainly given me a renewed sense of confidence in my ability to write, and permission to do that in my own voice after all.

This intensive is for writing first draft material; you’ll need to arrive ready to work on one or more new chapters or sections of your thesis. If necessary, you can bring books, articles, etc., but please don’t bring too many as table space is limited. Of course you can bring as much electronic material as you like. It’s best to prepare to write more than you think you can write in a day, as you may surprise yourself!
