Thesis writing: Sharing experiences, challenges and top tips
Research Hive, top floor of the Library
Friday 27 May 2:30pm-3:30pm – fully booked!

The Research Hive has had an amazing response to its first doctoral writing discussion workshop.

The session this Friday is now fully subscribed but, because of the interest it generated, we will be holding a 2nd workshop on the same theme in Week 10 to allow others to come together and discuss their writing practices.

Priority will be given in this later session to those who have been unable to attend the first workshop, and we will continue with our plan to roll out sessions on different related themes in the coming weeks and months.

How do you write a thesis? The actual process of writing your research can be one of the most daunting experiences of life as a doctoral researcher. Is there a formula for writing? How do you structure your time? Do you have any hints or tips for beating writers block? How do you deal with an 80,000 word limit?

In the first of a new series, the Research Hive Scholars invite you to an open form discussion on the merits and methods of your particular writing practices. This session will be driven by the ideas and topics of conversation generated by you. No lecturing – guaranteed!

Writing can be a lonely activity so, whether you’re looking for some peer driven guidance or think you may have a useful model for consideration then come and make connections with other doctoral researchers at the university and share your writing ideas and experiences with others.
