What do other people say about this course?

"Marialuisa's writing course has helped me improve my writing skills and has taught me a better and more efficient way of approaching any writing project. The course material consists of useful templates and techniques that help breakdown the writing task into smaller and more organised parts that make the task less daunting.
I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn or improve their writing skills. It can be a great help in particular to early career researchers with no or little writing experience."

- Dr. Ruchi Garg, FRIB Michigan State University (US)


"An enlightening experience, which allowed me to see the most relevant aspects of (academic) writing in a broader sense. This course offers a great overview and the contents can be applied to more than just writing. I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to learn a proper approach to scientific writing and it is even suited for seasoned veterans. 10/10" 

- Enis Lorenz, Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany) 



  A Little Bit About Me

wise-event-smallAs a full-time academic at a research intensive university, I could tell you that...

... I have published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, and that I have extensive experience in writing and refereeing scientific papers and research grant applications.

But the truth is that it wasn't until I started working with other academics that I realized how similar their struggles were to mine.

So, about ten years ago, I begun thinking about ways I could share my experience and provide guidance and support to many more researchers that those I supervise...

...until I finally put together easy-to-follow step-by-step programmes that could help you save time and effort and transform you into a confident, effective and productive writer in your academic discipline. This is how my courses Hands on Writing, Time Management and Productivity Mindset, and Research Publishing Masterclass were born. I hope you'll find them useful. And for any questions... I'm just a click away.
