Next week on the Professional Development and Research Training Programme

Write Club

Monday 6th March 2017, 0930-1200

Write Club is an opportunity for PGRs to meet up with other PGRs on a regular basis and write. Whether you’re writing a thesis chapter, research paper, or a funding application…Write Club provides a supportive place that’s free from distraction to release those words that have been struggling to come out. Sessions begin with discussing your aims for writing and any problems you currently have. Using the Pomodoro technique, Write Club is broken up into chunks of time to write in. You just turn up and write.
