This week we are exploring how to enjoy writing your PhD!

Our guest Dee Reynolds is a proofreader and copy editor, and an academic writing mentor.  She is a Professor Emerita (French Studies, University of Manchester) with a long career in research and publishing on topics ranging from French poetry to contemporary dance and neuroscience. 

Dee talks about the pleasure she found in her own PhD journey and the importance of following your gut-instinct and about collaborating with people along the way.  

Dee offers the metaphor of choreography for the process of writing your thesis and discusses how to create flow within your work; the importance of embodied learning; and the elements of a good literature review.

She also stresses the importance of seeking out positive feedback during doctoral study and suggests where you might find it.
