The documentary node are holding their first ‘edit bootcamp’ shortly. The edit bootcamp is the culmination of three months of regular workshops that have been designed to get early career researchers and research candidates writing. For the bootcamp everyone has drafted a minimum of 5000 words and there will be, at least, one complete edit of the draft completed on the day. Ideally two. (We have tips, tricks, and strategies to achieve this.) Red pen, double spaced manuscript, a computer. Coffee, lunch, and a schedule.
