Writing the Now — writing group

Writing the Now
Wednesday 17 January 2024, 10:30-12:00
In person, on campus

Part of the Writing the Now Sadler Seminar Series, this writing group is open to staff and Postgraduate Researchers across the University of Leeds.

Over the course of the year, we will explore different kinds of academic writing practice, try new things and discuss different elements of our writing practice in a safe and (hopefully) fun space. You are welcome to join for as many sessions as you wish!

In particular, we are looking for writers who are motivated by questions of form and content, affective modes, and centring writing as a fundamental part of the research process.

How to join the writing group

To secure a space please contact Laura Swithenbank by email at with:

  • the date(s) you want to take part;
  • a sentence or two on your writing practice and why you are interested in joining us.

Spaces are limited to keep the group to a manageable size so try to get in touch soon to avoid disappointment.

All dates

2023: 18 October, 15 November, 13 December
2024: 17 January, 14 February, 14 March, 17 April, 15 May
