Academic Writing Skills

Thursday, 20 September 2018

This session will introduce a practical strategy that can help academic writers start and develop a writing project.  

Writing to prompts - in several forms - is a strategy described in two books, Writing for Academic Journals and How to Write a Thesis.  
At this workshop participants will be asked to try this strategy, discuss it and reflect on its potential uses in their own writings.
