Content and Program

NORSI organizes a two-day writing seminar in 24-25 October 2019. During these two days, you will work on your writing skills as well as attend short workshops focusing on «the art of academic writing». Talks and discussion will focus on the following topics:

  • How to structure your writing time, get progress in your writing and overcome writer’s blocks
  • How to write high quality texts and how to avoid the most common language problems  that plague academic texts
  • How to convince your audience (and editors and reviewers in particular)

A detailed program will be available as we get closer to the dates.
