About this Event

500 useful words every day

Why are some research writers so much more productive than others? This workshop unlocks some of the secrets to help writers produce useful text on demand, a key professional skill for any researcher. It begins by exploring the reasons some researchers find it difficult to get on with their writing, and then outlines some of the approaches that have proven successful for productive writers. Participants then demonstrate for themselves that they too can write 500 useful words on demand.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • develop strategies for overcoming common writing blocks
  • identify advantages of binge, snack and serial writing practices
  • understand implications of the places and spaces for writing

This workshop will be presented by Dr Cally Guerin, a Researcher Developer in the Researcher Development Unit at The Australian National University. She has worked in researcher education since 2008. Her research interests include research writing, academic identities, the academic workforce, and doctoral education. She is a founding co-editor of the DoctoralWriting blog. Cally is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now known as Advance HE). You can read more about her research on ORCiD and here, and follow her on twitter @CallyGuerin.
