The Writing Cure: Managing PhD Stress through Creative Writing - Part I
von 13:00 bis 17:00
|Name||International PhD student support|
This webinar will be held in two half-day sessions, each of about 3-4 hours long. It will be aimed at discovering the values and uses of creative writing for confronting the often heavy mental and emotional toll that the busy academic lifestyle takes on researchers, especially experienced in times of crisis and historic global anxiety. The workshop will thus aim to help academics practise writing in an entirely different style.
The first part of the webinar will focus on poetic expression, how to structure a poem, how to think about descriptions, associations, and constructing metaphors. The second part will revolve around prose and writing very short stories on specific subject matters sourced from the researchers’ work or their academic environment.
- tap into your creative potential and learn a new way of academic writing
- develop a style of expression that could add vigour to your overall writing
- practise thinking of your objects of study in a non-scientific way
