Skills Development Programme for Contemporary Women’s Writing PGs and ECRs

At PGCWWN’s conferences, training workshops led by experts in the field (such as Dr Helen Davies’s workshop at The F Word) are well attended and well received. In response to a perceived skills gap between academic research in contemporary women’s writing and an increasingly competitive employment market, the CWWSkills programme has been created. This is programme is tailor made and supported by the AHRC, the CWWA and a number of HE institutions.

The programme comprises 6 training workshops held at different locations in the UK between 31st August, 2013 and 12th July 2014. The workshops will cover publishing, social media and digital technologies, communicating within and beyond the classroom, careers and employability and creating new audiences for contemporary women’s writing.

The CWWSkills programme is free of charge and reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed. Please note that places are limited and the application process is selective, based on the quality of the content you input onto the form. The window for receipt of applications closes on 21 June 2013. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application in early July 2013.
