About WriteFest 2021 - what it is and how to get involved.

November is Academic Writing Month!

This annual event was established as a way to support academic writing and during November 2021 the IAD will again be running WriteFest, a local contribution to this academic writing month. 

WriteFest is a collaboration with a number of other Universities and it aims to bring people together to raise awareness and celebrate academic writing.

What's involved?

This year’s WriteFest includes:

  • online writing retreats and writing hours,
  • writing workshops,
  • online resources and guides

all to support you with space and time to write. 

We will be regularly blogging during the festival from blogs.ed.ac.uk/iad4researchers  where we will share some experiences, promote events and courses and reflect on academic writing. We'll be sharing writing tips on twitter via the hashtag #AcWriFest21.

We hope UoE research staff and students are able to join us and write.
