DMU Writing Circle

Meet. Write. Learn.

The DMU Writing Circle is a community of DMU staff and research students interested in getting writing done and developing their capabilities as writers through participation in a regular social writing community. 

The DMU Writing Circle provides a collegial environment which meets every second Wednesday 2-4pm during term time. 

The sessions are currently ONLINE via Microsoft Teams. To receive an invitation to join the Writing Circle email Once you have joined the Circle you will receive reminders and will be able to access the Writing Circle Team. 

The primary focus of the fortnightly sessions is on actually writing, with the opportunity to discuss and share effective writing practices and approaches as well. The sessions are not intended to provide one-to-one writing support or critique, but rather to share experiences and techniques alongside peers.

The DMU Writing Circle is open to any member of DMU staff (academic and professional services) and PhD research students who want to develop as a writer. Any kind of writing is welcome (including creative writing, if you wish). 

So feel free to come along and meet, write, learn...

The Writing Circle is organised in a collaboration between the Centre of Academic Innovation, The Doctoral College, and Library and Learning Services.
