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 Masters dissertation writing?  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 Level 7 students 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 6-week programme runs 3 times per academic year: starting in November 2020, March 2021 and July 2021. You should be a Level 7 student to join the Writing Gym sessions.
