Event description

Description

This course is designed to enable academic writers to improve their writing skills.

Using some of the principles of creative writing, this lecture will introduce the basics of good prose writing. It will consider what it means to develop confidence, vocabulary and accuracy and what it means to find your voice as a writer.

This introductory lecture will be followed by a series of four workshops to develop your craft as writers. The workshops will be led by writers Keith Jarrett and Golnoush Nourpanah in the Spring Term. Applications for the workshops will only be open to students who attended the lecture and who can commit to all four sessions. Spaces on the workshops will be limited to 12 people.

The course is free and open to all PhD students from Birkbeck and the Bloomsbury Postgraduate Skills Network.

The Birkbeck Institute for Social Research (BISR) is the focal point for social research at Birkbeck and a hub for its dissemination and discussion in London and beyond.
