Description

Good Prose Writing for PhD Students
Birkbeck Institute for Social Research - Developing Your Research Career

Speaker: Julia Bell, Birkbeck, University of London

Using some of the principles of creative writing, this lecture will introduce the basics of good prose writing. It will consider what it means to develop confidence, vocabulary and accuracy and what it means to find your voice as a writer.

This workshop is free and open to all Birkbeck and Bloomsbury Postgraduate Network PhD students

The lecture will be followed by a series of four workshops to develop your craft as writers. The workshops will be led by writer Lily Dunn in the Spring Term. Applications for the workshops will only be open to doctoral students who attended the lecture and who can commit to all fours sessions. Spaces on the workshops are limited to 12 people.

Julia Bell is a writer and Senior Lecturer at Birkbeck College, London where she convenes the MA in Creative Writing and is Project Director of the Writers Hub website and the annual anthology The Mechanics’ Institute Review. She is the author of three novels, Massive, Dirty Work and most recently The Dark Light all published by Macmillan, the co editor of the Creative Writing Coursebook as well as three volumes of short stories most recently The Sea In Birmingham.

Julia also takes photographs, writes poetry, short stories, occasional essays and journalism, and is the co-curator of spoken word night In Yer Ear.

Developing Your Research Career is a series of seminars and workshops organised by the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research, and supported by the Birkbeck Graduate Research School, which aim to enhance the research skills and contribute to the career development of PhD students conducting social research at Birkbeck.
