PhD Writing Workshop

The second HCA PhD thesis writing workshop this year with Stella Tillyard will be held on Wednesday, 30 May 6-8pm in Room 327, 43 Gordon Square.

We usually have two submissions of about 2500 words each, of academic writing at any stage of development. These can be parts of the dissertation, grant proposals, conference papers, or book reviews. We have discussed everything from how to take notes in archives to dangling modifiers and all the problems of academic writing in between. All doctoral students in the department are welcome. You need not be in a place to submit writing in order to attend the workshop, though we strongly recommend that you come along for more than just one.

If you have a piece of 2,500-3,000 words that you would like to submit for discussion, please get in touch with Sian by Monday 14 May ( It doesn’t have to be finished or polished; useful feedback guaranteed.

*A third writing workshop has been scheduled for Tuesday 19 June, 6pm – 8pm, to replace the spring term workshop which was cancelled due to strike action.
