As of 21st of June, the writing group intended for LUCL PhD candidates and postdocs will meet every two weeks on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 until 12:30. When there is a PhD lunch, we will aim to go together to that directly afterwards.

Our writing group is about:

  • Becoming a better writer
  • Improving academic English
  • Creating a long-term working group of writing colleagues
  • Sharing support and motivation
  • Sharing a passion for writing
  • Getting actual writing done

The core activity of the group is: writing. For 2.5 hours all participants will physically sit down together and simply write (thesis (chapter), article, grant proposal – just bring the work that needs to be done). No talking, no checking of email or phones. Just writing. We will use the so-called pomodoro technique: https://www.academiccoachingandwriting.org/academic-writing/academic-writing-blog/v-use-a-timer-the-pomodoro-technique  / https://cirillocompany.de/pages/pomodoro-technique.

To facilitate both concentrated writing and meaningful feedback, we have booked adjacent rooms for the sessions: one to write and one to meet with the coaches to discuss questions, problems and writing style. Katja will be on hand to offer advice and feedback on the writing process (problems, motivation, the process itself, etc.) and Kate will be available to discuss issues relating to academic English, including style and grammar. You will be able to send drafts of papers or proposals to her for feedback on the English, which can be discussed during these fortnightly sessions.

Please see below for the dates and rooms booked for the writing sessions.
