NU Women Online Writing Groups 2020/21 UPDATED TIMES

NU Women writing groups will run online this year. The format will be the similar to previous years: 3 hours, no phone, no internet. They will commence with a 15-30 minute discussion about challenges, writing strategies etc and goal setting; followed by 2 1/2 hour writing; and then a 5 minute check in at end to report on what was achieved. Without the pressure of booking rooms, we can be more flexible with the number of groups and timing. If you are interested, please can you indicate which times you would be able to attend and we will set up the groups (with a membership of around 5-15). We would still like one or two people to nominally lead each group, eg to set up a recurring zoom meeting and to do introductions etc. Please can you indicate if you would be happy to do this.

Our usual structure of having a weekly reading/blog etc will be replaced with a selection of readings given at the outset (probably revisiting some from previous years) that groups can select from as a focus for discussion each week; or if the members decide, the first 15 -30 minutes can simply be a time to check in and see how people are getting on, provide encouragement and accountability and so on.

The groups are open to all women employees who engage in academic writing. Separate groups will be set up for PGR students and PS colleagues.
