This 2-day workshop invites you to develop your scientific writing skills and design productive writing routines. The goal is not only to improve the quality of the produced texts but also to make the writing process more efficient and even enjoyable.

Day 1 is dedicated to private writing: we write for content, not for effect. We experience how our thinking can profit from writing and learn how to “unblock” ourselves and get our creative juices flowing. We also analyze our writing habits and develop an action plan for improvement.

On day 2, we practice revising and polishing of scientific texts for publication. We proceed in stages from macrostructure to language, benefiting from peer feedback as well as exercises on paragraph and sentence structure, powerful language and the scientific writing style.
