Target Audience: Postgraduate Research Students

What do you need to get on with: thesis, papers, grant proposals, posters, job applications? From writer's block to fear of feedback and perfectionism, there are many ways we trip up the writing process.

By the end of the workshop participants will have:

• Shared good practice on writing and working with the literature

• Given and sought feedback on written work and published articles

• Reflected on plagiarism and ways to avoid it

• Reviewed your current approach to writing and considered helpful writing habits

• Developed a personalised set of actions that will support your writing

• Applied all these to real writing situations: from thesis to papers and more
