Just Write! – Writing Club

Do you find it hard to get into the habit of writing your PhD thesis? Perhaps you find writing a lonely experience? The University Graduate College’s Just Write! sessions can help.

 How does it work?

Why attend?

These writing sessions have been found to be really useful in helping postgraduate students overcome procrastination and develop self-discipline in writing. You also get to meet other postgraduate research students who are going through what you are experiencing.


Just Write! sessions will initially take place once every month as we are piloting these sessions. Please note that you must bring your own laptop to these sessions. Dates and times of all sessions are as follows:

Date Time

Thursday 17 July 2014 14.00 – 15.30
