The AcWriMo 2022 will end with a wrap-up session, where Dr Murphy and Dr Chu will facilitate reflections on how the writing goals were achieved for this month, what habits and tools we will carry forward, as well as how to form writing groups/retreats for the future to foster the writing habit. There will be a time in this session to write together as a group to round up the month.
This event makes space for researchers to build a supportive writing community together, which would benefit those who are unfamiliar with how to manage multiple demands from academia, giving them a place to vent, build writing habits, and share successes.
Participants are warmly welcomed to attend the opening workshop on 1st November (click here for details and registration) and the SRHE AcWriMo Power Hours taking place throughout November.
