Say Hello to the Writing Process

A Lunch Lecture Series at the Arts Campus about Successful Academic Writing Strategies. Location: HumLabX

Writing is a process and at times a challenging one.

During the Fall semester at the Arts Campus we will run a lecture series that focuses on different stages in the writing process. With each lecture, we highlight strategies and tools that can help you with your writing and use of sources. You can attend all of the lectures or pick and choose a few of them. There is no need to sign up in advance and all Umeå University students are welcome to attend.  

In addition to the lectures, there are web pages connected to the series. For each lecture, there is a corresponding web page with more information and links to other helpful web resources. After each lecture, the respective web page becomes available.

Come get acquainted or reacquainted with the writing process; there's no need to suffer in silence about writing.
