Writing training

From 2018-2020 I was the Director of Writing for Academic Publication, a consultancy that offered training for early career researchers in getting published in English language journals. There remains a great need for effective, contextualised training in this area, particularly in the Global South. I have been privileged to work with people from around the world from diverse backgrounds - from Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, China, Myanmar, Uganda, South Africa and UK. I am proud of this work and I am happy to support those who are setting out in publishing and/or training, so feel free to get in touch with me if this is you!

Here are some examples of the work that I did during that time.


"The workshop helped me enhance my publication skills and learn how to cope with the increasing pressure on us to publish." (Senior Lecturer, China)
"Helen's teaching approach was empathetic - she encouraged me to continue writing, improving and publishing." (Assistant Professor, Taiwan)
"Dr Hanna was able to make the complexity of publishing seem straight forward."(Postdoctoral Researcher, Bangladesh)

British Council Thailand - Early Career Researcher Programme (September 2019 - March 2020)

I was a consultant for British Council Thailand, working around the Inclusion, Mobility & Multilingual Education Conference in Bangkok on 24-26 September 2019, to support early career researchers (ECRs) from ASEAN to prepare for conferences, make effective presentations, network and publish in English language journals. We kicked off the ECR programme with a webinar on preparing for academic conferences. Then we met face-to-face at the conference and I delivered writing for publication workshops. From late 2019 until early 2020 I supported a select number of ECRs to write articles for the post-conference publication. Looking forward to the launch in summer 2020!

British Academy writing for academic publication workshop at East China Normal University, Shanghai (December 2018)

Here are some photos from our British Academy-funded 2-day writing for publication and research collaboration workshop at the Institute for International and Comparative Education, East China Normal University in Shanghai. We had participants from universities across China, studying and working in education. I'm very grateful for the expertise of Prof Gary McCulloch (Institute of Education, University College London), Lachlan Smith (Cloud Chamber), Routledge Taylor Francis and Prof Mark Reed (Fast Track Impact).
