Inspired by Julienne’s structured hot dollar workshops I’ve outlined a schedule for the next few months in the writing workshops. These are for creative, critical, playful, even conservative, ways of writing for academic (research) outcomes. What the industry refers to as Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) things. To be clear, in the non/fictionLab we are committed to exploring, initiating, and doing experimental forms of academic writing, so these workshops are both for those just wanting to ‘get published’ and those wanting to push the boundaries.
The invitation/details about this workshop is done via a gCal invite using the nonfictionLab email list, if you’ve deleted the invite, just let Adrian Miles know.
