Writing

Materials on how to write good texts are found here. I have collected videos, links and questions to discuss. My view is that writing is a creative process that needs time and harmony. We can’t force ideas to present themselves, but we can plan so that they have a chance to come!

Much of what is discussed in my teaching is collected in this Prezi-ntation: https://prezi.com/mygpzegqm09m/essay-writing-tips/

Below please find the materials organised under these five headings (corresponding to the video tutorials further down):
