“Writing sprints” can facilitate collaboration and encourage new ways of thinking about academic writing
Claire Taylor and Niamh Thornton describe their experience of hosting a “writing sprint” in a blog post by the London School of Economics and Political Sciences.
“For us the writing sprint was an exciting way to enable collaboration, and to encourage authors to think about new ways of presenting their research.”
The “writing sprint” was held in conjunction with Liverpool University Press during Academic Book Week in 2015. It was conceived as a time-limited exercise in which a group of academics were brought together virtually to produce a collaborative output, focusing on a specific theme, in this case, Modern Languages.
