Do you find it challenging to present your research results in written form? Do you struggle to combine your time-consuming work in the lab with a structured writing process?

A regular exchange with your peers in a writing group can be very motivating and can help you to meet these challenges, to overcome writing blocks, to better organise the available time for writing, to formulate concrete writing goals and to improve the overall quality of your papers or your doctoral thesis.

The kick-off workshop will introduce the participants to the concept and organization of writing groups. You will get input and practical exercises regarding the giving and receiving of peer feedback. You will also receive the necessary tools to ensure a regular, sustainable and reliable working routine for your writing group.

At the end of the workshop, the participants will form writing groups, which will meet over the following months. Please note that for organizational reasons it is not possible to join a group at a later point.

As a prerequisite for participation in the kick-off workshop, please bring drafts of your research writing (e.g. parts of your doctoral thesis or drafts of your research papers).
