can I find my academic voice?' is a question many researchers ask. Some also
wonder how it's possible to have a voice if you can't use 'I'. This workshop
explores the concept of 'voice' in academic writing and how confidence and
courage are important to self-expression. Through activities and examples,
we’ll identify the writerly techniques that create a ‘voice’ and consider the
relationship between the writer’s voice and the reader’s experience. We’ll also
look at paraphrasing, what it is and how best to go about it.
