Fortnightly critical writing workshops are held for all interested research students, early career researchers, and early career publishers. The workshops provide exercises, activities, support, advice, and feedback on scholarly writing, including conference and paper abstracts, conference papers, and published work. The workshops help participants become better and more productive writers, and are strongly orientated to letting you do the sort of academic writing you want to do, not what you think you have to do.
These workshops have been successful in letting participants become better writers who enjoy the hard work of writing more. Workshop participants have had work accepted in national and international conferences, journals, and books. They are run on a studio model, so what happens in each workshop depends on what people bring. They are outcome orientated, so are all about getting things done. These are NOT workshops for writing theses and dissertations, they are very much about developing your academic abilities alongside your PhD, teaching, or admin.
