    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. 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.

    At the moment, we have taken the decision to shift these events online. We will review whether to continue with these sessions online (or resume face to face meetings) depending on how circumstances change.One advantage of running the session online is that we may be able to bring in some external guests. We also hope that the format might enable more people to take part in the sessions.

    You can find regularly updated details of days, times and provisional topics on the LEaD events calendar and filtering for Blog Wirting.
    Please fill in the sign up form if you would like to be added to our mailing list and we look forward to seeing some of you in the autumn.

    Before we start, you can browse previous posts to find out some of what we’ve covered in previous sessions
