An in-person academic writing workshop, delivered by Royal Literary Fund Fellows

This workshop will guide students to become more confident in their writing skills as they make the transition to university, college or work. Delivered by professional writers, the session focuses on essay writing using a combination of practical tasks and discussion.

Topics covered include: sharing techniques to develop practical writing skills; encouraging clear, direct and concise writing; understanding critical thinking; practising paragraph planning; and exploring the editing process. Students will also get the opportunity to do a short tour of the British Library as well as receive a printed copy of the student toolkit at the start of the session.

Student feedback:
‘Realistic and reassuring practical advice. 10/10 …’
‘It has made me more aware of the power my words have.’
‘When you said at the beginning “Writing is a skill, not a talent” I didn’t believe you! I thought you were joking. But now I can really see this is the case.’

Teacher feedback:
‘A clear programme of learning, covering aspects which are vital for academic writing. All of the students felt more confident … they described feeling “reassured” and “more ready to write at college/university”.’

Also available: Develop your Writing workshop delivered as an online workshop
