Reading Like a Writer (True North)

  • Birkbeck, University of London (map)

Suitable for first and second year researchers (up to year 4 if part time)

Academic writing the creative way: How can the creative writer’s tool kit make your academic writing engaging, compelling, and narrative-led, while admitting no loss of rigour? This one-day workshop will introduce you to a range of writerly skills through which you can make your presence felt on the page. Crucially, it will help you begin to find your voice as a writer – that is, the quality of distinctiveness that will give your work the stamp of originality and draw the reader in. Using plenty of examples, and a mixture of discussion, pair work, and writing exercises – including free-writing and call-ins – we walk you through how to write irresistible openings to your chapters, and sections within chapters; how to bridge that imaginative high-wire writing within a robust narrative structure; and how to identify and privilege your questions, and keep track of them. In all this, we draw directly and broadly on our own professional ‘toolkit’.
