November is Academic Writing Month, an academic write-a-thon that happens every year, inspired by NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) but catering to the specific needs of academic writers. It’s hosted by PhD2Published, as an online space where the global academic community can pledge their writing projects, record progress, and share thousands of writing tips via the #AcWriMo hashtag on Twitter.

We will be joining the University of Sheffield WriteFest (#AcWriFest18) initiative, by bringing together people from across the university to recognise and celebrate writing. During WriteFest we will be running Shut Up and Write sessions and writing retreats to provide you with space and time to write, along with a selection of workshops and resources to support your writing.

WriteFest is a collaboration with the Universities of Manchester, Sheffield, Exeter, Bristol, Kings College London, Keele, Sheffield Hallam, Liverpool, Newcastle, Derby and Adelaide.
