LISS DTP Writing for Non-specialist Audiences (Online delivery)
19th October 2020 @ 9:30 AM - 4:15 PM
Many postgraduate students struggle to explain complex ideas to people outside their discipline. Yet, these days, being able to write about your research for a broad range of audiences is an essential skill. This practical, interactive online workshop helps students to identify who might be interested in their research and gives them a set of tools to analyse a target audience; understand what their readers need and want, and use this information to make choices about content, language and style. A 90-minute zoom workshop is followed by 6 x 30 min 1-1 consultation slots, bookable in advance on a first come, first served basis.
11:30-16:15 1-2-1 Sessions
