This two-day academic writing workshop is for researchers and graduate students who wish to publish research articles in English. The aim is to demystify the writing process, improve the style and structure of your English academic papers and make you a more confident writer.
Day one will focus on the building blocks of good writing, covering topics such as classic mistakes made in written academic English, the structure of an English paper, paragraphs and sentences, vocabulary and phrases and punctuation. On day two, we build on the knowledge and skills of the first day of the workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to apply newly learned skills by working on their own texts as well as analysing good writing by authors in their field. In addition, on the second day, we focus on integrating a narrative style into your abstract and introduction, as well as indicating your paper’s importance.
Preparation: Participants should bring along at least two sample papers from their field of research, ideally written by native speakers of English. In addition, participants should bring along a writing project they wish to work on during the workshop.Read more
