Academic Writing

Power Hour of Writing: The Power Hour of Writing (PHOW) is a short period of protected time which allows participants to focus on a project of their choice, strengthened by accountability and supported but a community of peers. Our research into the PHOW demonstrates that participants, usually a mixture of university staff and postgraduate research students (PGRs), appreciate the legitimacy if having time set aside for them to work on their project; this is especially relevant for academics trying to juggle heavy teaching load with research and/or study commitments.
