The presenter of some of our popular writing session Dr Matt Lane is hosting a free virtual structured writing hour, Mondays – Thursdays at 11:00 – 12:00 (UK time) for the foreseeable future.

(You will be notified well in advance on the few occasions when I cannot host the hour due to own work commitments.)

Inspired by the work of Rowena Murray, it is a virtual structured writing hour, divided into 3 parts: 10 mins writing ‘warm-up’; 45 mins of writing*; 5 mins ‘cool down’. (These writing hours are also known as: ‘Writers Group’, ‘Shut up and Write’ or the ‘Anti-Procrastination, Productivity Hour’.)

Why Participate?
* In this period of self-isolation, upheaval from our normal lives and work routines, researchers might be finding it ‘challenging’ to carve out time to write, whether articles, theses or administrative emails.
* This period of self-isolation may make worse feelings of loneliness that many researchers experience anyway.
* This virtual Writers Group seeks to counter these feelings by enabling researchers to come together (virtually), get on with the day-job of writing and in the process build a sense of connection and a virtual community.
* It can also be a space to help researchers manage their procrastination, too.

What you will need:
- Computer, laptop, good old-fashioned pen and paper – whatever you write with and on.
