Finding your voice

Thursday 28th November, 6pm

Ever read a blog post or newspaper article and thought you could have done it better? Ever thought you’d love to share your work with the world outside academia, but don’t know how?

Finding your Voice

On Thursday 28th November three speakers will be sharing their experience of academic research and writing for the public:

  • Dr Katherine Angel (Research Fellow, School of History)
  • Dr David Hone (Lecturer, SBCS)
  • Ms Raf Nicolson (PhD Candidate, School of History)

They’ll also be answering your questions about blogging, writing for the press, and making yourself heard.


The event starts at 6pm in Francis Bancroft, room 1.13a. All postgraduates and early career researchers from all disciplines are welcome. And we’ll even have some wine and nibbles to entice you!

If you have any questions, please email Heather Campbell: h.campbell@qmul.ac.uk.


Winning Words aims to

  • To encourage early career researchers to disseminate their work beyond the realm of academia, through the creation of a writing competition and associated training events.

  • Facilitate a community feel among PhD students of all disciplines through the creation of an electronic magazine showcasing the work of individuals.
