• Writing Hub

    The Writing Hub aims to enable Brookes to develop into a community of writers who support each other to excel. It encompasses staff and students, our academic writers across the disciplines, our present or future professional writers and those at every stage of developing their writing.

    This initiative is drawing together the conversation about writing across the university community and potentially beyond. How it might evolve is up to those who get involved.

    What does stylish look like?

    Wednesday 25 March 2020

    This online discussion of Helen Sword's paper Writing higher education differently: a manifesto on style was facilitated by Dr. Marion Waite, Principal Lecturer for Student Experience in HLS.

    We considered together what stylish academic writing looks like in the different disciplines. How does (or could) our thinking around this influence support for students in developing their academic style and voice? Staff and students went away ‘feeling liberated’, ‘less intimidated’ and ‘more brave’ when it comes to the ‘risk-taking’ of finding their voice in their academic writing. 

    A podcast based on the discussion will be available on the website in due course; email writinghub@brookes.ac.uk to join the mailing list and receive notification.
