ARITHMUS participates in November Writing Month

November is National Novel Writing Month (see Although we do not write novels, we are interested in the writing process and trying out new ways of writing together.

Focussing on academic writing, we organised two activities:

Baki Cakici organised ‘Sit down and write’ (co-organised with Katherine Robinson, Goldsmiths): weekly two-hour ‘write-ins’ open to everybody.

Francisca Grommé organised a campus writing ‘retreat’: two days of structured writing at the Goldsmiths campus for the ARITHMUS team members and colleagues from the Sociology Department (following the model presented in Murray and Newton, 2009).
