Writing Surgery with Royal Literary Fund Fellow Benjamin Woolley
Writing clear English prose is tough. Complex scientific subjects, daunting word counts and high-stakes academic assessment can intensify the challenge.
I am a professional author, journalist, broadcaster and academic, and as the Royal Literary Fund Fellow at SGUL for 2012-13, I can help. All students and staff are welcome to come and see me for free, confidential, one-to-one advice, whether it is with writing essays, SSCs, journal articles, theses or job applications.
For a 45-minute consultation, book via the Moodle calendar by going to https://moodle.sgul.ac.uk/mod/scheduler/view.php?id=14877. Log in and click the button next to a convenient appointment slot, then click ‘Save My Choice’ (to be found at the end of a long scroll to the bottom of the page). Or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My room can be found in Student Support Services on the second floor of the Hunter Wing (next to Counselling Services), and I will be there on Mondays and Tuesdays during term time throughout the academic year.
I can help with:
- developing structure and argument;
- drafting introductions and conclusions;
- expressing ideas in continuous prose, rather than as a series of bullet points.
Bring along an outline, early drafts or the nearly finished article--whatever you have, and I will see what I can do to help.
You can find out more about the RLF's charitable and educational mission at the Royal Literary Fund website, and about me at my home page.
I look forward to seeing you.
