Academic Writing Month: What are you working on?

Another November is upon us, which means that it is Academic Writing Month, or AcWriMo!

Check out what others are doing on Twitter (#AcWri) and Facebook. Academic writing month was started in 2011 by Charlotte Frost (founder of Phd2Published). Frost devised six relaxed rules that are helpful to review for anyone who has not yet participated in AcWriMo. Read these here.
