This 2-day workshop provides insights into the process of Academic Writing. The focus of this intervention will be on you, the writer, and your masterpieces, that is, your manuscripts. The thrill of this workshop is to help you see what you are capable of doing as a writer, that is, moving from being a less skilled writer to a more proficient and critical writer. In this process, you also polish your skills in Academic Writing through language use such as: Clarity, Conciseness, Cohesion, and Coherence. This workshop specifically emphasises on paraphrasing what authorities say, summarising information, and synthesising the views of authorities. Hands-on exercises on the respective skills will also be provided. It is hoped that by the end of the workshop, your attention to language use for writing manuscripts has become enhanced through your own ability to paraphrase, summarise, and synthesise.
