Help with Academic Writing

Writer in Residence – Duncan Forbes, RLF Fellow

I am writing to remind students and staff that I am here to help with academic writing, whatever the discipline or level.

My brief is to advise on a confidential, one-to-one basis and I can comment on work or work in progress. The advice can cover such areas as expression, style, accuracy, planning, structure and relevance.

I am at the university from 9 – 5 on Mondays and Tuesdays. An appointment can be booked by email and will generally last for about 45 minutes, depending on what is needed. I am currently offering appointments on the hour each day from 9 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm and the tutorials will be in Bredon 034.  If possible, please email me in advance sample work or work in progress so that I have some material to consider.

The service is free and is sponsored by the Royal Literary Fund which provides over eighty such fellows in universities and institutes of higher education throughout the UK.

Please draw these details to the attention of anyone who might benefit from the help. 

Many thanks
