One-on-one mentoring

Comments raised during copy-edit plus can form a focus of a discussion on more general issues relating to writing in English for those who have English as a second or foreign language.

Small group workshops can be arranged on topics relating to academic publishing or writing academic materials as a non-native English speaker. Some of the workshops I have organized in the past include The future of academic publishing and Writing to be cited.
