Helping academic writers with style at

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München



Over four days in October 2020, I led an online group workshop and individual writing-coaching sessions for 11 participants in the History and Theatre Arts faculties at the Ludwig-Maximilians University. The workshop was centered around five writing concepts:

(1) subjects, characters, and action

(2) sprawl

(3) old before new

(4) when to use active and passive voice

(5) complexity last

In breakout sessions during the workshop, participants worked through examples to apply and reinforce the concepts. In individual 90-minute sessions following the workshop, I evaluated and revised participants’ work on-screen and sent them detailed notes diagnosing their writing challenges and suggesting ways to improve.
