Writing Clearly & Succinctly (17th Ocotber, Sydney 2017) 

Overview

For science to be understood, assimilated and further developed, it needs to be accessible through clear and concise writing. The Writing Clearly and Succinctly workshop takes you through three stages to help you improve the clarity of your writing. We discuss the writing process and recommend techniques to improve efficiency. We review sentence structure without introducing complicated grammar rules and teach you how to improve the flow of your writing.
