AcWriVox is a growing playlist of videos documenting the voices of academic writers. Created for WriteFest, academic staff share their writing processes, habits and spaces with us. This series aims to make the unseen practices and processes of writing more visible and less mysterious.

More diverse individual takes on writing are in the making, and even more are being recruited, particularly from women.

These videos were directed and filmed by the Think Ahead team and professionally edited by Robert Myles, filmmaker.
