This workshop welcomes any student or staff or emerging researcher in the Humanities and Social Sciences, who would like to start writing a conference paper or poster for display at a conference.  After input on the process of responding to a conference call, abstract and poster writing, the workshop space gives participants the chance to write an abstract, poster or paper, for a chosen conference.  Participants will also get a chance to start writing a draft abstract, story an argument and do any other related writing, with feedback from the facilitator and peers in the workshop itself.  You will leave feeling confident about tackling the start of your writing process.
