*Writing Clear Science Workshops *

We operate from the fundamental premise that writing produced by scientific
professionals should be accurate, clear and succinct.

*Our writing workshops*:

-           teach the skills that are essential to effectively design and
write high quality research reports, technical and industry reports,
peer-reviewed papers and theses.

-           are relevant to individuals from all science backgrounds and
with different levels of academic achievement.

-           involve a flexible rotation of lectures, writing exercises and
discussion sessions.

*Science professionals benefit from our writing workshops by*:

-           refreshing their writing skills (punctuation, sentence and
paragraph structure).

-           improving their ability to write clearly and succinctly.

-           improving their editing and critical evaluation skills.

-           learning how to structure any document from basic principles.
