Introducing The Summer Of Writing Season

 

We’ve designed a summer programme that has one goal in mind: to help you write more, worry less and graduate sooner. Click on each listing to find out more and grab your ticket.

Hosted by world class academics and educators, these virtual, small group sessions are designed to fill gaps in your knowledge and understanding. They focus on thesis structure, writing skills, and productivity. 

Most of the sessions are recorded, meaning you can watch back as many times as you like. You’ll also get access to the presenter’s slides.

Check out the listings below. New events are added weekly, so be sure to bookmark this page.
