Other activities

In addition to one to one appointments and our workshops in the Schools, the Writing Development Centre may run a range of other activities at relevant points throughout the year, such as induction, dissertation or exam time. These may include drop-ins, forums, writers’ groups and workshops.

This summer
Get that dissertation DONE
With the WDC

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!

Editing Your Dissertation... with the WDC!

Book your place:

The best way to learn a new skill or try out various strategies or approaches is to put it into practice and reflect on it with others. That's why we don't offer traditional classes or lectures - you're the expert in your subject and in what works for you personally, and our sessions also include plenty of discussion, both with our tutors and with other students, to share ideas, help you explore an issue, ask questions, suggest new approaches and how they might work for you.

If you attend one of our sessions, expect plenty of activities and discussion!

New skills and strategies are best explored in context of what you're studying, so we try to time our sessions at appropriate times of year. Sessions are stand-alone so you can select the ones which apply to you at a particular time; we don't offer a series of classes as we find this is too inflexible and generic, and doesn't put you at the centre of the process. If you'd like to explore any of the issues raised in a session in more depth, you are welcome to book an individual tutorial with one of our tutors.

Further details and booking will be made available here on a termly basis.
