NOVEMBER is Academic Writing Month (#AcWriFest21)
November is Academic Writing Month. This annual event was established as a way to support academic writing via the #AcWriMo hashtag on Twitter. Use the hashtag #AcWriFest21 to share your progress with other researchers.
During November 2021, the Centre for Learning & Teaching and Research & Innovation Services are providing a local contribution to academic writing month, with the aim of bringing people together to raise awareness and celebrate academic writing.
What is WriteFest?
With so many competing priorities and stresses, it may seem impossible to even think about writing. Use this month to help you build productive habits and get your writing mojo back!
We have weekly mini writing retreats & many workshops, covering writing papers, research funding, academic publishing, giving feedback on writing, and learning creativity in academic writing.
This year we have so many workshops, we have had to extend Academic Writing Month to 6 weeks!
This festival aims to provide protected time and space for writing, to help you to:
|develop good writing practices and strategies||overcome blocks, proactive approach||academic writing as part of the working day||spend some time out writing with others|
