This six week writing group starting on Tuesday 12th January aims to inspire, motivate, reduce isolation and create a sense of community for researchers who are writing during this period. We meet on Zoom at 09.30 every Tuesday, for half an hour, to set our writing goals. From 10.00-11.00, Katie will be available for short one-to-one sessions to discuss writing matters. We come back together at 16.30 to report on progress.
There is space for up to 12 researchers, who must commit to attend every Tuesday morning and afternoon, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Dates are: 12th Jan, 19th Jan, 26th Jan, 2nd Feb, 9th Feb and 16th Feb.

regular. protected time for writing thesis chapters

the chance to share writing experience with fellow students
