Venue: Online

Book your place

Writing is a craft - even when we write non-fiction such as essays and assignments, it is creative and expressive, challenging and rewarding. How do we get our ideas onto the page? This workshop presents ways for you to develop as a thinker-writer, including strategies for drafting and redrafting, editing for content, structure and cohesion, and offers tips for proofreading your final document.

This online workshop will take place on Microsoft Teams.

All our workshops are repeated numerous times throughout the academic year. The resources and a recording of this workshop will be available in the Writing Resources section of the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle module.

The central study skills team offers a variety of study skills and writing skills workshops.

This is one of the writing skills workshop series, which consists of:

1. Essay and assignment writing
2. Grammar: sentence structure and punctuation
3. Style: Academic writing conventions
4. Structure: Organising your assignment
5. Dissertations: the planning stage
6. Drafting, editing and proofreading your assignments
