About the Workshop
What does it feel like to write? What are the sources of good writing? And what do we need to do to make writing a significant and meaningful part of our scholarly lives?

This workshop is designed to assist postgraduate students who are completing theses and Early Career Researchers – but anyone who is writing non-fiction is welcome!

The workshop aims to be friendly, informal and constructive.
