Writing Gym - Skills Centre

Sessions and online writing retreats designed to maximise productivity for Masters students working on their dissertations and research projects.

What is the writing gym?

Welcome to the Writing Gym

Are you ready to flex those finger muscles and bulk up your writing? With summer on the way, that can only mean one thing: dissertations and research projects for all the taught-postgraduate students out there. Thankfully, the Skills Team has just the training programme to help whip your work into shape. It’s time for you to join the Writing Gym.

Our Writing Gym has been created to help support you through the dissertation process by providing a space for you to learn new approaches to writing, share ideas with others, and crucially do some writing!

Each session is 90 minutes and will involve a mix of tuition, goal setting, writing and sharing experience. Two Academic Skills advisors will facilitate each session, but you must come prepared to participate and join a community of your fellow writers. There's no need to attend every session - feel free to attend the sessions that fit your writing progress best!

Our content sessions are for Masters/PGT students only. 
HIIT sessions are open to Masters/PGT students and doctoral students.
