Writing to engage the reader (W13R)

Engaging the reader is a calculated process meant to lift the barriers between reader and text by captivating their interest and ‘befriending’ them. Coherence and unity are the two fundamental qualities that any text needs if it is to generate interest in its intended audience. These two concepts have one shared scope: to ensure the fluency of the text and, in turn, to support the progression of its argument.

This workshop looks at linguistic techniques essential for text coherence and unity and, ultimately, for the successful communication of the research undertaken.
