Writing Workshop

Professor Susan Long

Thursday 13, Friday 14 and Saturday 15 October 2022


Professor Susan Long, author of many books and peer-reviewed articles, is offering a writing workshop for those who want to find the genuine author in themselves. Writing can take many forms: academic theses, research reports, persuasive items, business reports, journalistic pieces, novels and poems. Although having different purposes and audiences, all writing can be creative, and all messes can be cleaned up later.  This workshop aims to help participants become authors of their written pieces; to discover the role of author; to allow their imagination to flourish. It also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

In the Writing workshop, participants will approach questions such as:
Why do I want to publish?
Who is my audience?
How do I choose a journal or publisher?
What do reviewers and editors look for?
How can I manage time for writing?
How do I present and develop an argument?
How should I work with case study material?
How can I understand and develop my style?

There will be time for writing and gaining feedback.

Susan’s warmth, wisdom and ability to be present and hold the space the entire time,
gave me the confidence to find and use my voice and take up my role as ‘author’!

– K. Hallinan, workshop participant


As nerve-racking as it was, I found the opportunity to share our writing with
others and gain their feedback and insight to be a very profound experience.

Susan Long’s words about ‘claiming our authorship, loving every word on the page’
and other good tips about writing will remain with me for a long time.
