After all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed, there’s still something wanting in your academic writing but you just don’t know quite what. Maybe it’s the “V factor”— the sense of a lively presence, an authoritative speaking, perhaps even singing, or declaiming voice.

In this interactive, three-hour workshop we will hear from three writers who will read short excerpts from their writing, talk about how they work, and discuss what has influenced their academic writing style. Authors will offer concrete tips for other writers who wish to cultivate their own voice or style in academic writing, in order to engage an appropriate readership.
