Ngozi's Testimonial

I participated in the Researcher’s Writing Academy online course in the first quarter of 2022.  The course is designed to mentor researchers through the whole process  of writing a paper for a high-impact journal, and learn the tried and tested system of how to write consistently and get published regularly.  It is a self-paced online course, with videos guides (10-40 minutes long), and a total viewing time around 9 hours.  It consisted of five 5 modules which make up the Journal Publication Formula — the step-by-step paper writing system:

  • Module One: Streamline your writing process
  • Module Two: Develop you story
  • Module Three: structure each section
  • Module Four: Communicate clearly and concisely
  • Module Five: Package for publication

The course also included:

  • Exclusive access to the member-only community hosted on Circle

  • Paper Writing Guide (PDF Workbook) + worksheets + templates

  • 9 live group coaching calls (+ recordings*)

  • Weekly co-writing sessions

  • Pop-up online events (book clubs, planning workshops, writing retreats…)

  • All course updates during enrolment period

  • 12 month access

The highlights of the course, and what I liked most, were the tips and tricks of how to be a consistent writer.

My participation in this course useful for my work and development in my career, because it has helped me build my confidence as a writer.

The section of the course was most interesting and useful for my career development was the one-on-one assistance, and knowing that I have network of writers for support.

There were also really helpful resources, such as having a template that you can use as a guide.

Thank you so much for funding this course. I know that I am now a more confident writer and I hope to get published more regularly.
