New Writers’ Workshop

Do you want to publish your research in an academic journal?
Have you had your work rejected and wonder why?

Compare/BAICE are offering a writers’ development programme for new educational 
researchers. An all-day workshop will be held in Oxford on September 10th 
(immediately before the UKFIET Conference). Dr. Theresa Lillis (Open 
University) and Dr. Anna Magyar (University of East Anglia), both with many 
years’ experience of teaching academic writing, will be facilitating the 
workshop, in collaboration with Compare editors and editorial board members. 
Afterwards, each participant will also be allocated an individual academic 
writing mentor to give follow-up advice and feedback on drafts of their work by 
e-mail. This is a unique opportunity to receive individualised support with 
your writing and gain an insider perspective on publishing in Compare (a 
journal of comparative education).

To book a place at the workshop, you will need to have conducted educational 
research and have unpublished material or drafts of a paper that you would like 
to work on. Compare/BAICE are sponsoring this workshop and follow-up support. A 
fee of £20 will be charged to cover refreshments, and participants will be 
expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

If you are interested in participating in the workshop and would like to book a 
place, please contact: compare at uea.ac.uk. Numbers at the workshop will be 
limited to 20 participants only.
