Please note that this workshop has been revised to run in an online format of webinar followed by individual 1-to-1 sessions.
If 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 one hour presentation on Zoom, followed by Q&A, 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. After the presentation (09.30 - 11.00) there are 6 bookable one-to-one consultation slots, to discuss any related writing issues.
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.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place. 1-to-1 sessions will only be given to those who attend the main session in the morning, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on signup.
