PD Martin, Carrie Tiffany, and Julienne Van Loon
Thinking about diving into a writing project through university research? Find out what it's really like to write a creative work through practice-led research, with frank discussion and tips from writers who've been there. Ask about choosing a supervisor, working through your topic, how to approach study if you're coming back after a break, what to expect (and what not to expect), and find out whether a creative PhD is for you.

This seminar will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

Chaired by Writers Victoria Director, Dr Angela Savage, the panel will comprise writers who've tackled PhD's at various universities, by distance and in-person, with children and without. Come along and find out all you ever wanted to know about creativity in the world of academia.
