BERA-BAICE Writing for Publications Workshop

This workshop is targeted at PGRs and ECRs who are relatively new to the ‘Academic Publications World’ and who lack experiences in writing for academic journals, newspapers, and publishers. The event aims to introduce fresh writers to general principles and techniques of writing for publications, as well as to provide them with hands-on, tailored support suitable for their experiences and specific areas.

Important: You are strongly encouraged to bring pieces of your writing or working ideas in order to attend the workshops
