Next Early-Career Writer’s Workshop

Considering the success of the last early career writer’s workshop I think we should have another session once the term is over. I suggest that those of you interested in joining in should fill in the Doodle Poll so I can choose a date which suits most of you.

For a link to the poll:

http://www.doodle.com/8wz5hbbtp23drtuf

When you sign up, please do specify if you would like to have one of your articles peer-reviewed, by sending it to me at celine.sabiron@wolfson.ox.ac.uk. (the articles to be analysed will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. We will probably have time to analyse only one article during the session but we can have regular sessions throughout the summer for those of you who will be in Oxford. Yet, if there are lots of us we could also imagine setting up a couple of groups, with one focusing on one article and another one on another). If one of your articles has been reviewed during one of the Workshops, we do ask you to review another one in return and out of courtesy towards your fellow researchers.

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!
