Academic Writing Month - LTUacwrimo

Academic writing 2018

Academic Writing Month at La Trobe turns 6!

If you would like to make progress on your academic writing, with like-minded colleagues, then this month-long festival of writing is for you. Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo) has been developed for all researchers at all levels (including graduate researchers), at every campus and externally.

Since 2013, the RED team has created a month-long, multi-campus and online program to enable and encourage academic writing: with events, blog posts, workshops, and conversation on Twitter around the #LTUAcWriMo hashtag.

Academic Writing Month culminates in a three-day writing retreat, held at both the Melbourne campus and the Albury-Wodonga campus . Run since 2015, this popular program facilitates you to work on your individual writing goals in a supportive environment. Travel and accommodation assistance are available for La Trobe researchers based regionally or externally.

Getting involved

All researchers at all levels are invited to participate.
