Course overview

Learn from highly cited academics how to improve your writing in just one day. Experienced editors and reviewers will provide top tips on how to get your work published.

I found the course to be amazing, useful, and clear. It did exactly as I expected it to do. I came away with all my questions answered, and also feeling like my concerns were understood during the practical session. Professor Kovas has this brilliant way of figuring out what you want to say, and figuring out what parts don’t fit in the text you submitted. She was also kind and gracious with her critique, which made the sessions inspiring.

I absolutely loved the course. It was precise and insightful, and also really inspiring. I am really pleased for specific feedback I received about my project, and I also found it really useful talking about my work. When I spoke about my ideas aloud, I realised where the blocked, and fluid parts are, and it helped me to re-organise and structure my work.
