Writing component supervision 2016-17

with Kate Briggs and Steve Rushton

How the process will work:

1. October 6. Graduate Project Proposal workshop: drafting it in a day.

2. October 13 and 14. Kate and Steve will give feedback on your draft proposals in the form of a tutorial and help you to make a plan of action for your writing projects, working towards the first deadline.

3. October 24, submit your finished Graduate Project Proposal to the PZ office.

4. October 28. 10am-1pm Finding a form: a workshop on writing and form (and writing toward the volume of 8,000 words) for everyone.

5. Following the Graduate Proposal Seminar on November 2 and 3, the supervision of the writing component will get underway.

This will comprise of a one-hour tutorial with your writing tutor once in November, once in December and then at a rhythm of once every two weeks until the final deadline in April. There will also be a group session at the end of each tutorial day. This is a flexible time which we can decide how to use depending on your needs and interests: we could use it for the purposes of a reading group, circulating and reading each other’s texts, working on our bibliographies, working on the unit of the paragraph, the line break etc. We’re of course open to all suggestions.

A tutorial day will typically look like this:

10 am – 4pm: hour-long tutorials with supervisees (with a break for lunch)

4pm – 6pm: group session

We hope that to have an allocated “writing day” once a fortnight will encourage you put dedicated time aside for your writing projects, while at the same time ensuring that it is kept in proportion to the time you give to your studio work.

Please note that participation in the group sessions is optional: some sessions may feel more useful than others. But we see it as a regular moment to share and discuss issues in relation to writing and your research.
