you think in pictures, or in 3D, how do you build a linear, sequential academic
argument? How do you convert a mind, map or visual plan, into sentences and
paragraphs? This practical workshop helps visual thinkers to 'unpick' their
writing process and to assess the effectiveness of each strategy they use. It
also offers new tools and techniques to organise your ideas before putting
words on the page, and to write with confidence, without losing creativity.
This workshop will be run by Anne Wilson. Anne has a background in journalism (features) and corporate communication (scripts,
speeches, screen media copy), combining her writing with facilitating
writing workshops in HE. She was Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Brunel
University for three years, and now runs workshops on academic writing
and professional communication for postgraduates and staff at Brunel and other universities. She also coaches students for the 3MT competition
(won by Brunel in 2017). She has recently collaborated with the Brunel
Occupational Therapy department to investigate what kind of feedback
helps students to improve their academic writing.
