Target Audience: Research, academic, knowledge exchange and teaching staff
How do you initiate the writing process when faced with only a blank page or a cursor incessantly blinking on the screen? Effective written communication is an essential part of academia and researchers are required to write a variety of documents including papers for publication, grant proposals and books.
Manuscripts must be clear and concise and written in a manner that is appropriate for that particular style of document. Scholarly writing projects involve planning, drafting & redrafting, setting deadlines and collaboration.
This workshop will focus on how to start writing, how to keep going and how to finish.
At the end of this workshop researchers will have:
- been introduced to a range of writing productivity techniques
- planned out a manuscript from scratch
- discussed various writing challenges with their peers
- initiated a work-plan & set deadlines for their writing project
