ANU AcWriMo (Academic Writing Month)

Need to get some writing done before the end of the year? November is academic writing month! Join the HDR community online for a festival of writing, set your writing goals and have some company along the way. 

Why do it? 

Writing always seems to take longer than we expect, and for lots of us it’s really very hard work – so we procrastinate and procrastinate… Breaking through your usual barriers and establishing the habit of writing is very motivating. AcWriMo will kickstart your writing and provide a community to help you succeed. 

How does it work?   

You decide how many words you are going to write each day, or how many hours you will devote to writing each day. Aim high, but within reach. At the end of each day enter your output for the day; at the end of each week, tally the results and brag about your total. Sign up and register your output here.

Extra writing events

 The pre-AcWriMo workshops in October will get you ready for a productive month. We schedule a series of writing events during November. Check the HDR Update for upcoming events.
