    LEaD Writing Group

    Are you interested in blogging, but not sure where to start? Never quite manage to find the time to sit down and do that piece of writing you’ve been putting off? This message is to let you know about the monthly LEaD Writing Group and invite you to join us.

    Since 2016, we’ve run an informal writing group within LEaD that focuses on support for blogging and giving participants some time and space to catch up on a little writing. It’s a monthly 60min event, typically held in B310 (the LEaD Training Room, at Northampton Square). Experienced bloggers, those new to it, or those thinking about starting one – all are welcome, as are those just looking for a quiet half an hour to finish off a paper or something.

    This week, we reopen for a new academic year, with a session on Thursday October 3rd, from 12:00 – 13:00. Sounds like your kind of thing? Then…

    …or you’re welcome to just turn up on the day.
