Contemporary Women's Writing Skills Development Programme - Home

Welcome to the CWWSkills website! 

This AHRC-funded Contemporary Women’s Writing Skills Development Programme (CWWSkills) is a series of six workshops, to be held between August 2013 and July 2014. The programme is designed to enable UK-based postgraduate research students and early-career researchers who work in the field of contemporary women’s writing to develop an entrepreneurial approach to their research. 

Emphasis, throughout the programme, will fall on the real-world application of research in the field of contemporary women’s writing. In a rapidly changing literary and media environment, training will be provided in the utilisation of digital technology to maximise the communication of that research to the widest possible audience groups.
