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 year, with a session on Thursday January 9th, from 12:00 – 13:00. Sounds like your kind of thing? Then…
- Sign up here to join our mailing list and stay informed of future sessions
- Find out what we’ll be covering during our first session of the year and when the next ones are
- Browse previous posts to find out some of what we’ve covered in previous sessions
…or you’re welcome to just turn up on the day.
