Develop and celebrate your writing
WriteFest is a celebration of academic writing that occurs throughout November. It’s a very positive and celebratory event, bringing together people from across the University to recognise and celebrate writing.
The festival offers writing retreats, workshops and online resources to raise awareness and encourage people to get out and get writing together. The event is aimed at staff and PGR students.
WriteFest is part of Keele University's contribution to Academic Writing Month. It is a collaboration with the Universities of Sheffield, Exeter, Manchester, Bristol, Kings College London, Sheffield Hallam, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Derby and Adelaide!
WriteFest covers topics such as writing for publication in journals, writing CVs and personal statements, blogging, goal setting, and structured writing retreats.
