Led by Dr Helen Kara, this practical workshop will enable you to explore different aspects of the writing process, writing strategies and will be a chance for you to do some PhD writing. It is tailored specifically for Arts, Design & Media PhD researchers in the early to mid-stages of their research. Lunch and refreshments will be included.

Here’s what some our researcher’s have said in the past:

"Helen was so much fun and shared so much with us … she tapped into my most intimate fears about showing people my words and putting them out for (my perceived) judgement."

"The workshop was great – I thought Helen’s advice was superb and most importantly it was great to meet people at the same stage of their PhD."

"Today has been brilliant. I wrote 3100 words across the writing sessions which is unheard of for me!! Really useful to get tips of day to day writing as well."

Please note there are limited spaces available!
