National Writing Workshop for PhD Students at WHU Düsseldorf

How to write better and more effectively?

How to write better and more effectively?

On August 24th and 25th, Prof. Gerpott organized the annual Writing Workshop of the German Psychological Society (DGPs) for PhD students in Work and Organizational Psychology. Together with six pro-bono mentors who devoted their time to developing the next generation of scholars, we spend two days in impulse sessions and small paper discussion groups. Besides discussing concrete manuscripts, a big part of the workshop was also devoted to general writing advice and thoughts on how to successfully start an academic career.

If you are a PhD student interested in improving your own writing skills, check the DGPs website for next year’s workshop.

Anyone else who is interested in the content of the program or thinking about implementing something comparable at their own university, please get in touch with fabiola.gerpott(at)
