VIEW THE PROGRAM HERE

The 4 days will be a combination of workshops, discussions and facilitated writing each afternoon. Some morning sessions will involve you working with your supervisors. The aim of the program is to progress your thesis writing with a particular focus on writing for publication as this is a key component of the new PhD by Publication degree structure. We will also be concerned with developing sustainable writing productivity strategies, so that the benefits you gain over these four days may continue throughout your candidature.

Before lunch there will be writing workshops and each afternoon will involve you undertaking specific writing tasks to progress your thesis. It is important that you attend the full program and particularly work with us in the afternoon in order to consolidate the morning's work.

Topics to be covered

(1) Writing for publication: practices and pitfalls
(2) Building sustainable networks and routines for writing productivity

What to bring

  • Laptop and power cord.
  • Consider your ergonomics - bring anything you need to optimise your comfort, because we will be doing lots of writing over four days. For example, some people find it advantageous to bring a cushion, laptop stand, mouse, separate keyboard and so on.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided each day.
