December 2020 – Hive Calendar

December? What

We don’t know about you but we cannot believe it is December already… where did all the time go? Things might be rough but at least there’s some Christmas cheer to look forward to. Here’s presenting the Hive’s December calendar for you:

Since we want to carry on some semblance of normalcy and research, we will continue with Breakfast Serial Writing through the month. It has been lovely to host these and see some of your faces on Zoom every Tuesday morning and work together! If you aren’t signed up to our mailing list, you can still do so on and get reminders to join us every week.

In addition, we have Tea & Talk on 10th December from 3-4 pm. We are also in the process of arranging a new batch of care packages to go out – and we are very excited about them! So do leave your email to receive the zoom links for our monthly Tea & Talk sessions, as well as be the first to hear when we start sign-ups for the care packages:

We are beyond excited to be able to host a very merry Christmas Quiz for you! On 17th December at 5pm, we come together for some Christmas cheer, and fun quiz rounds. Of course there are prizes to be won. Pets, partners, friends, mulled wine and mince pies — all welcome to join! Sign up via

Finally, there are some lovely non-Hive events through the month.

The Postgraduate Network is hosting their final events next week, including a Holiday edition of their regular meetup on 7th December.

Excursions Journal is very proud to announce that their 2020 issues will be published in December! We are so proud of the Excursions team for managing to publish two issues in these crazy times and we can’t wait to read them!

The themed issue on “Chaos” is coming on 7 December, and the editors are hosting an Instagram Happy Hour to celebrate — more details on their social media: it’s @EXSJournal on Instagram and Twitter. Later this month, it’s time for “Reflections“, a very special issue celebrating 10 years of Excursions. This will be published on 30 December.

We hope to see you at some of these events — and if not, we hope you have happy holidays and see you next year!
