‘Publish or perish’ Academic writing month (AcWriMo) 2015 round up

PhD2Published is a web based resource and community that hosts academic publishing advice. In 2011, inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Phd2Published launched Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo). The goal of participating in AcWriMo is to help participants develop better and more sustainable academic writing habits. AcWriMo caters to the specific needs of academic writers at all stages of their career, from undergraduates to well established professors. Held each November, the online event has participants from around the world sharing their joys and trials of achieving their month’s writing target.
