About WriteFest 2023 - 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 2023 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, and writing-themed workshops, all to support you with space and time to write.  There is a mixture of online and on-campus options to attend. We also have a range of writing-themed guides you can access.

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 #AcWriFest23.

We hope University of Edinburgh research staff and students are able to join us and write.
