Writing Sessions for Researchers

All researchers, from doctoral students to staff, are welcome to attend twice-weekly writing sessions in the School of Arts. The sessions are designed to give researchers at all levels some time, space and peer support for focused work on extended writing projects. We meet on Mondays and Fridays from 10am to 1pm, and you can attend as often as you like. You should bring anything you need to write (eg. a laptop and charger, headphones, a notebook, pens, books, quiet snacks).

We follow the structure devised by Alice Kelly, with two writing sessions of an hour and fifteen minutes and a break halfway through to refuel and chat.

Structure

10.00-10.15: arrival, introductions and setting up

10.15-11.30: first writing session

11.30-11.45: break

11.45-13.00: second writing session

You don’t have to attend each session: if you think you would like to come at any point, email sophie.jones@bbk.ac.uk to be added to the general mailing list. On Friday, a sign-up sheet will be emailed out with details of the room. There is a cap of 10 people per session due to the room size, so please sign up in advance.

Note: The group isn’t designed as a space for sharing work, though it might well create opportunities for doing so.

Email sophie.jones@bbk.ac.uk with any queries.
