Supporting Academic Writing Success

In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to make progress on large writing projects like dissertations and theses without succumbing to stress or procrastination. Then, we’ll discuss tools and strategies that will help you elevate your grammar and style to the level expected by professional scientific readers, journal editors, and graduate supervisors.

Presenter: Dr. Ian Garner coordinates Student Academic Success Services’ (SASS’) outward-facing programs, working closely with professional staff and faculty to develop and deliver workshops and programs on academic and writing skills at all levels. After completing his undergraduate education in Russia and England, Ian completed a PhD at the University of Toronto and taught languages at school and university level. Ian has published translations and research in various journals and popular publications, and a book manuscript based on my doctoral work is due for release in 2022.
