About this event

Getting Writing Done Workshop

Tuesday 16th August 4-5.30pm UK time

From journal articles to your thesis, there’s no escaping the amount of writing you have to do as a PhD student. But sometimes we may struggle to write as much as we want to. Some days the words just won’t seem to come. This workshop will help you to think about your writing processes and about what to do to get writing done.

This workshop will start by exploring the nature of writing - what writing is and what we are trying to achieve with it. We’ll then look at some of the things that might prevent us from getting words on the page. Finally, we’ll talk about different techniques to get you writing. Throughout the workshop, we’ll be discussing these issues as a group, as well as practicing some of the things we’ll talk about. By the end, you’ll be armed with the knowledge to help you get writing done.

If you've taken part in on of our multi-session writing bootcamps you'll recognise this workshop. We wouldn't recommend joining the workshop if you've done one of our bootcamps - there'll be a lot of overlap and reptition.

About the host

The session will be facilitated by Dr Heather Campbell, a Learning Developer and specialist in academic writing. Heather has helped hundreds of students and academics with their writing, through workshops, retreats, thesis boot camps, individual consultations, and taught sessions. As a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Heather has also developed effective approaches to the teaching of writing and to supporting students in their learning. As well as helping students to write on these monthly workshops, Heather enjoys writing herself, both in her original area of study, History, and in the field of academic writing.
