Writing circles are small groups (generally six to eight, though there may be some variation) of students that meet regularly to share excerpts of their work, discuss them together and give each other tips and advice. If you struggle with the nuance of academic writing, the one thing you can be certain of is that you’re not alone; many students have similar issues, and writing circles are an opportunity to work together with your peers in a safe environment, analysing your work collectively and sharing your concerns.
These sessions are facilitated by NUPSA’s Research Representative, Ashleigh McIntyre.
Writing circles work best when they have a balanced amount of students. To help us plan them, please register if you’d like to attend.
