This session will consider the basic elements of effective academic writing and how they can be combined to ensure the best chance of success. Issues covered will include preparation (targeted literature reviewing, taking a ‘stance’ as an author, the creation of a writing plan or preliminary draft), the task of writing (having clear aims, order and structure, signposting, guiding the reader, drafting), writing style (the achievement of clarity and simplicity) and the need for a clear, logical and straightforward conclusion or ‘take-home’ message. The session will also provide an opportunity to discuss writing issues specific to particular disciplines or students. This session represents over a decade of academic writing experience packed into two hours, so please come along and take advantage!
