The workshop’s goal

This workshop offers the opportunity to discuss and scrutinize currently worked on academic texts with a special focus on Anglo-Saxon reading expectations. Based on the knowledge and insights gained in the workshops “Academic Writing in English” and/or “Academic Writing Lab”, participants’ drafts are edited by Dr. Crow and reviewed by the other participants during the workshop. During this process it will be pointed out which parts of the text can be improved by which measures and thus ensure that the text’s messages are presented in a straightforward manner. By adhering to all the elements that make for a well-written and readier-friendly text, the texts’ quality will significantly improve, and the likelihood of the text being well received, e.g., published, will increase.

Note on restrictions should the Corona crisis continue 

Should it continue to not be possible to conduct workshops as in-person events, we would offer this workshop in a slightly different format. What will stay the same is that you can email Dr. Crow your text (one page in a word format), she will edit it and send it back to you with her comments. What will be different is that you will discuss your text with her via a video conference tool or via a regular phone call. This appointment will be scheduled individually with Dr. Crow.


The materials used in this workshop are academic texts written by the participants. The texts are emailed to Dr. Crow, who will edit them before the workshop begins. During the workshop the texts will be scrutinized by the other participants under the guidance of Dr. Crow. After the workshop the participants will be emailed their texts with Dr. Crow’s editing remarks.
