Keen to develop your academic writing?

Come along to our new ‘ Write Bites’ workshops in the Writing Centre starting on Wednesday 10 February 2016.  

You will already know that academic writing is a skill critical to academic success.

Would you like help with academic grammar, critical thinking, how to write an effective abstract, or any other aspect of academic writing?

Why not join your peers and our Writing Centre tutors at our new ‘ Write Bites’ workshops? Starting on Wednesday 10 February 2016 from 13:15 – 14:05, ‘Write Bites’ will run weekly on Wednesdays and focus on a different topic.

The main aim of ‘Write Bites’ is to enable you to learn and share ideas in an informal and collaborative setting.

The workshops are open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students.

You do not need to book, you can just turn up and bring your lunch with you.

You can find ‘Write Bites’ every Wednesday during semester in the Writing Centre, 3W 2.1 on the Parade, from 13:15 – 14:05.
