Writing groups are run continuously throughout the year by Graduate Education Officers.
These include an informal weekly writing space and writing retreats.
Facilitated Writing Space
One of the most useful strategies for effective progress through your candidature is to develop the habit of writing on a regular basis.
Making use of the facilitated writing space gives you the opportunity to get into good writing habits in a supportive environment.
- Time: 1-4pm every Monday
- Space: Meeting Room G20, Hackett Hall
- Requirements: Bring your laptop and some writing to work on. You are welcome to discuss your writing with one of the Graduate Education Officers during the session.
