In four workshops more than 45 international PhD candidates based in Germany, France, China and Australia came together to focus on writing skills and learn from professional writing coaches as well as from their peers.  

Sessions focused on:

  • How to regain momentum after a writing break
  • How to set realistic and motivating writing goals
  • How to overcome perfectionism
  • How to get into the right mental space and find your motivation
  • How to write a concise literature review
  • How to deal with distractions and set the scene for a perfect/productive workspace
  • How to improve productivity
  • How to nourish your brain and body

The final event was a hybrid writing event around the globe adding up to a 24 h writing relay across time zones. Participants chose their most productive time and wrote in a group setting via Zoom or on campus in Bayreuth or Melbourne. Focused writing sessions alternated with short breaks, a relaxing yoga session, snacks and networking. We are proud to say that we managed to keep the relay going for 19,5 hours straight.
