Engaging with difficult academic texts can be challenging.

This workshop looks at how you can engage with difficult academic texts and use them in your own writing.  As well as discussing the practicalities of how you paraphrase, summarise and quote from sources, we will also think about how to engage critically with texts, and how reading relates to writing.
