This will include techniques for maximising the effectiveness of your writing time and the sharing of best practice with other researchers, whilst also looking at how an awareness of narrative can improve your productivity and the clarity of your writing. The workshop will also give you the chance to create a ‘take-away’ action plan for writing your next publication(s).
