It’s the 30th November. Which means that tomorrow it’ll be the 1st December. Which means that Academic Writing Month, aka WriteFest 2018, is done!
So what have we achieved
Well, this month, as a university, we’ve produced
- 3 video shorts containing 9 writing tips
- 9 book reviews on how to write books
- 5 weeks of activities
- 4 drop-in writing days
- 4 writing workshops
- 3 thesis bootcamp days
- 3 writer’s retreats
- Several other blog posts
- 1 limerick (a bad one)
- … and written 373,000 (approx) words.
(All sung to the tune of ‘On the first day of Christmas’)
It’s not just about the words, or the events though. Because what comes from writing is theses, and articles, and books, and grant proposals, and job applications, and these lead to PhDs, and grants, and publications on CVs, and jobs.
So, we have reason to be proud. And next year, we’ll try and do more.
Thanks for spending the month with us!
