'How can I find my academic voice?' is a question many researchers ask. Some also wonder how it's possible to have a voice without using ‘I’. This online workshop explores the concept of 'voice' in academic writing: what it is; how to recognise it; how to develop your own with courage and confidence. You’ll need access to your work-in-progress so you can apply workshop insights directly onto your own writing.
A 2 hour zoom session is followed by six 1-1 consultation slots (30 mins), bookable in advance on a first-come, first-served basis. Information about how to sign up for one-to-one slots will be sent to participants in the run up to the workshop.
