LISS DTP Stylish Academic Writing (Online delivery)
16th November @ 9:30 AM - 4:15 PM
Academic writing doesn’t have to be turgid prose that is agony to read (and to write). Complex ideas and abstract concepts can be expressed in simple language that anyone can understand. This session is for students who aspire to write clearly and elegantly in their discipline and who would like to improve their style. A 90-minute zoom workshop is followed by 6 x 30min 1-1 consultation slots, bookable in advance on a first come, first served basis.
