Get that dissertation DONE

Dissertation deadline this summer? The Writing Development Centre is here to get you writing, keep you motivated, and develop strategies for editing your work.

This year, Master’s students can access an exclusive preview of our brand new workshop programme – '... with the WDC.'

We have two sessions on offer:

Write Here, Write Now … with the WDC!

Just want to get some writing done?

These 2 hour structured writing sessions will help you concentrate and be productive.  Like a mini-writing retreat, we’ll write together in a supportive group to encourage each other, and also discuss and develop strategies to help you address common issues like writer’s block, procrastination, planning techniques or managing drafts.

Editing Your Dissertation ... with the WDC

This session will give you the space to explore editing strategies with your peers, and the time to experiment them. These strategies may include:

  • Fine-tuning or planning introductions and conclusions 
  • Checking coherence, including transitions between sections and paragraphs
  • Reviewing and refining paragraph structure
  • Ensuring the relevance of your material
  • Writing for a reader
 Sign up to both of these sessions if you wish, just remember to bring something to write!
