Journal writing Boot Camp

2021 dates:

  • February 10, 11, 12 2021 *online*
  • May 19, 20, 21 2021 *online*

Did you promise yourself you will 'finish that paper' and somehow it doesn't happen?

Want to make sure it will?

Join our three day, online journal writing Bootcamp May 19, 20, 21 2021 with your writing coach, Professor Inger Mewburn (better known as @thesiswhisperer).

Inger has published multiple books, including two on academic writing, and authored over 27 peer reviewed journal articles, conference papers and book chapters. She does all this 'proper' academic writing and still manages to write 30K words per annum on her blog, which she has maintained for the last 10 years. She doesn't always love writing, but she knows how to get writing projects done and will share her productivity secrets over three days of this intensive writing workshop.

The format will be a three-day Zoom meeting, strictly limited to 30 people from The Australian National University. This opportunity is available to PhD and MPhil candidates and Postdocs. There will be short 'tips and tricks' sessions where Inger will show you how to impress those peer reviewers and 'shut up and write' style sessions where you have a chance to work on your manuscript in harmonious, online company of others.
