Final entry on Introduction to Academic Writing

Workshop Tutor: Dr.Emma Smith

Well here i am, writing my final entry for the academic writing workshop!

Dr. Emma Smith, I want you to know that undertaking this module has helped me a lot as far as my writing skills are concerned. It helped me identify my mistakes and common errors in my writing which usually went unnoticed to me.

I am sure that undertaking this workshop has provided me the foundation needed for practical real word writing scenarios.I was too easily confused as far as the location of "comma" was concerned. Through this workshop, i understood the significance of developing an outline of your work before commencing it.

Currently, i undertake the practise of writing the important points to be covered in a paragraph initially and then go about expanding it and structuring it properly which in a way helps because it lets me focus on the point of interest rather than deviating away from it and thus keeping my work organised and clearly structured. A common mistake of using inflated sentences seems to be a thing of the past now.

Furthermore,I understood the importance of doing a spelling and grammer check before submitting my work so as to maximise my chances of scoring higher in my work. I also understood the significance of using several words that mean differently and thus avoid repetition in my work.

Last but not the least, i would like to thank you with all my heart for the effort that you have put in for organising the workshop and helping us identify our mistakes and improve upon them. I am very grateful to the entire team at WSPA for thinking out of the box and planning and executing workshops which target at the most common weaknesses of students and help them improve for the better.

Thank you!
