Target audience: Doctoral researchers from all disciplines at a mid to late stage of their degree. Research staff are also welcome to book a place to attend this workshop.

Are you close to a full draft of your book, article, or thesis chapter? Does it resemble a baggy monster that needs taming? If so, this workshop is for you. Through activities and tutorials, you’ll learn techniques for getting your writing into shape. By the end of the workshop, you will have a polished chunk of writing and a clear strategy for tackling the rest of your publication.

We’ll cover:

Attendees need to bring a printed copy of their draft (article, or thesis/book chapter) and a laptop.

Each topic comprises a facilitator-led tutorial and discussion, followed by an opportunity for participants to apply the learning on their own writing. Everyone swaps a draft during the final session to practice giving and receiving constructive feedback.
