Dr. Kimberly Crow



The workshop addresses scholars and provides practical assistance in writing academic publications. During the workshop, we will discuss place writing takes in research, how to deal with writer's block, address issues such as how to think about and develop a “storyline” and a “take home message” as well as how to organize an article’s key elements and which stylistic elements enhance the quality of a paper.

  • You will be familiar with different strategies that can help you successfully approach and organize your writing.
  • You will know about the importance of and how to decide on your take home message.
  • You will know about the importance of and how to develop a strong storyline.
  • You will be familiar with different ways of convincingly arranging your arguments.
  • You will have a clear understanding of stylistic elements that upgrade the quality of your writing.
  • Discussion and questions
