Scriptoria Writing Workshop 

All researchers now have the opportunity to attend this workshop as they have proved to be a valuable investment for the College.  Researchers who have attended the course have rated it very highly.  Since attending PIs have noticed an improvement in the way researchers present ideas and results, and it also boosts confidence.

Feedback from one of our academic supporters: "It was a VERY useful course - and I didn't feel like too much of a fraud! I would happily recommend it to anyone."

Feedback from participants

"I can honestly say it has been one of the most useful workshops I have ever attended."

"Fantastic course! Will recommend it to colleagues.  Very informative; it helped that the trainers were well informed.  Enjoyed the 2 days and left with confidence and enthusiasm about writing again."

The workshop will teach you the principles of organising ideas and content in a logical way, and according to the intended reader the benefits carry over into other areas such as planning experiments and giving oral presentations.
