Tuesday 13th April – Thursday 15th April
The three-day Writing Academy will enable you to develop the skills required to improve the quantity and quality of your publications and to develop a publication strategy which best represents you as an academic.
The academy is a great opportunity for academics who are new to publishing or would benefit from some additional direction and coaching.
You’ll have access to an external consultant who will advise you on techniques and style. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your ideas and issues with your peers.
The program and objectives for Writing Academies are as follows:
- Day 1. Planning and writing your research article
- Day 2. Developing a Strategy for Getting Your Articles Published, Read and Cited
- Day 3. Writing Day – to put into action everything discussed over the proceeding days
You will also have the opportunity to discuss your publishing goals and prepare a plan to accommodate writing within your day to day routines.
The trainer for the Writing Academy is Patrick Brindle.
Patrick divides his time between his training and consultancy business – Into Content – and his work for City, University of London. At City he is Programme Director on the Publishing MA and International Publishing MA. Patrick has a PhD in History from Cambridge University, and has worked in editorial positions across the social sciences at Pearson Education, Oxford University Press and SAGE Publications. Patrick provides staff and PhD level training on book and research paper writing, and on general publishing strategy, to a range of universities, including Oxford, UCL, Leicester, Royal Holloway, the SRHE and the ESRC’s National Centre for Research Methods. He also has a specialism in helping academics in writing about methodology.
