How to write a lot? On academic writing
"For many of us editing is the most difficult part of the writing process. This workshop teaches how to tame the chaos of the first draft and how to edit papers in an organised, step-by-step fashion.
The workshop is very strongly oriented towards the writing technique and the principles of good style. It dispels many myths around academic writing. It teaches the basis of clear, precise style that is reader-oriented and improves the author’s chances of publication. It is based on a wide range of teaching resources on academic writing, as well as my experience as the as reviewer and a successful academic writer. The workshop has been prepared with Maria Kula - an experienced editor and a creative writing teacher.
The workshop is highly practical and focused on editing rather than theory. During the workshop participants work on their own papers or thesis sections.
The topics covered include:
Writing as an exercise in empathy - focusing on the reader in the process of edition
Writing on topic
Structure - especially paragraph structure - and the logical flow of text
Language - sentence structure and length, grammatical constructions, vocabulary and precision of language”
