Writing Skills for Postgraduate Research Students

The ACC Writing Lab invites you to our discussion series 'Writing Skills: Expanding your academic practice'. The first event in the series is 'Writing Skills for Postgraduate Research Students'.

Wednesday 17th February: 12 noon - 1pm (GMT)

This series will comprise of three live discussion events linking to the last three writing resources we released. You can find them, and all the details below, in the 'Writing Resources' section of our Moodle:

1. Writing Skills for Postgraduate Research Students, an introduction to ways in which postgraduate research students (MA/MSc/MRes/PhD) can improve their writing skills while finding new ways to communicate research to other members of their discipline, funders and even the elusive 'general public'.

2. Publishing Your Work in Academic Journals: a 10-Step Guide, which covers editing your paper, understanding journals and their communities, submitting your paper and increasing its impact, and more.

3. An Introduction to Academic Book Reviews, which covers 'finding the why', understanding your audience, pitching, reading for reviewing, and more.

The first event, Writing Skills for Postgraduate Research Students, will take place on Wednesday 17th February, from 12 noon - 1pm. The writers of these three resources, Dr Hélène Maloigne, Dr Efrosini Charalambous, and PhD candidate Anthony Walker-Cook will be in conversation. They will be joined by Abdel Abdou, PhD candidate and President of The UCL Review. We will also take your live questions on the day.

The event will be held via Zoom at the link below. You do not need to register in advance. If you require any reasonable adjustments, such as a transcriber or BSL interpreter, just let us know as soon as possible by emailing the Convenor, KJ Reilly (k.reilly@ucl.ac.uk), and we will arrange for that.
