This guide contains information about, and links relating to the 2021 (pilot) USC AcWriMo (Academic Writing Month) program.

About AcWriMo

Thank you for your participation in this year's pilot USC AcWriMo! So we can make next year's AcWriMo bigger and better, we're keen to hear your thoughts and ideas about how USC's first AcWriMo went for you. The data collected from this short survey will help inform further development and improvement. Your participation is voluntary and will take approximately 2 - 5 minutes of your time. Responses will be kept confidential. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Research Support Librarian, Alisa Howlett via email ahowlett@usc.edu.au.

 

AcWriMo is a ‘festival of writing’ that aims to bring the USC research community - HDRs, honours students, post-graduates, ECRs and researchers, together in a month-long focused effort to advance their writing goals. The 2021 pilot program is brought together and promoted by Academic Skills and the Library.
