Workshop Overview:

This session discusses how to use your time and research efficiently for maximum publication output. The workshop is highly interactive, with writing exercises and reflection built into the materials, in order for participants to try out some of the writing strategies under discussion. The overall aim is to increase participants’ confidence in their writing, particularly in relation to maximising the effectiveness of more frequent, shorter periods of writing time in order to maintain a writing routine.
