Writing well is a life skill.

Writing is crucial to academic success, and it’s the most transferable skill the academy teaches. Learning how to write means learning technical and rhetorical skills—but it also means learning how to build the right habits. Doing this alone is hard; doing it with a partner who’s doing the same thing works much better.

Living well is a learnable skill.

Once your students know how to build and protect writing-conducive habits, they’ll know a lot of what they need to keep the most common mental health problems at bay. Effective skills training works better than post hoc welfare interventions.


We train and support you to create and maintain carefully matched 1-1 writing partnerships for students and researchers, complemented by powerful writing events and resources. We guide you every step of the way to confidently managing a programme that gets your researchers putting the things that matter most at the top of their agenda, right from week 1 of their degree course or role.
