‘How can I find my academic voice?’ is a question many PhD students ask. Some also wonder how it’s possible to have a voice if they can’t use ‘I’. This workshop explores the concept of ‘voice’ in academic writing and how confidence and courage are important to self-expression. Participants are asked to bring some of their work with them so they can apply insights from the morning to considering ways of exploring and developing their own voice in afternoon timed writing sessions. By the end of the workshop you should be better able to:

  • consider voice in general, and your own voice, in academic writing
  • examine the relationship between writer and reader
  • explore how techniques used in non-academic writing can be adopted in academic writing
  • understand the benefits of reading as a writer
  • consider the relevance of narrative techniques to academic writing
  • think about how to paraphrase effectively
