Being creative with academic writing : practical workshops

Are you interested in developing and experimenting with your professional writing?

Tired of reading (and writing) boring academic articles?

We are running a series of linked workshops for members of the teaching and research staff in the Faculty who are interested in experimenting with their professional writing and discussing writing issues. Our aims are to:

  • Explore contemporary creative approaches to different forms of professional academic writing.
  • Discuss issues relating to innovation and style in academic writing
  • Think about using images and other media as well as or in combination with writing
  • Look at ways to produce a 'good read' without compromising scholarly aims
  • Provide a forum in which participants can experiment with their own writing and receive supportive feedback

We have materials and ideas to bring to the workshops, but we also hope you will add to these. We want the workshops to be informal and participatory; structured but also negotiated.

These workshops will be run through the Literacy Research Centre and are supported by the FASS staff development fund. They will run every other Monday lunchtime over terms one and two, starting on 15 October.

We would like those interested in joining to be free to attend all or most of these sessions.

If you are interested in taking part please email Kathy Pitt on for further information.
