Becoming a Better Writer
Nobody is born writing good academic English, it is a skill that
we learn and develop.
This workshop will explore what is good writing and what is
meant by good academic style. Through interactive activities,
participants will look at common issues in academic writing
and consider how to apply lessons learnt to their own work.
Key areas covered:
• UK Academic Writing
• Academic Style
– Style and “Un-Academic” Writing
– Redundancy
– Informal Vs. Formal Language
• Paragraphing
This workshop is suitable for all, both native and non-native
speakers of English.
