Scientific Writing Workshops

What if you could:

  • have a better quality of student/postdoc manuscript drafts cross your desk?
  • save the months of stress that come with trying to get a draft on paper?
  • learn how to better craft a manuscript to attract readers?
  • knew how to write a proposal that your reviewers wanted to fund?

My scientific writing workshops are designed to teach academics manuscript organization, grant preparation, and writing techniques that can be applied immediately to speed up the manuscript writing and editing process.

Together, we can:

  1. Eliminate the stress associated with writing
  2. Speed up the writing process
  3. Generate higher impact manuscripts and grant applications
  4. Increase readability and accessibility
  5. Save you valuable time so you can go back to saving the world!

 

So, what skill to you want to acquire first?
