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
