NU Women PGR Online Writing Groups 2020/21 UPDATED TIMES

NU Women writing groups are running online PGR-specific groups this year. The format will be as follows: 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.

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). The groups are self-run but we would 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.

A selection of readings about academic writing will be provided and groups can select from these as a focus for discussion at the beginning of 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 PGRs who engage in academic writing.
