October 2013 update

I really enjoyed having the chance to sit in on everyone’s presentations in Barcelona and overall I was impressed by the quality of what I saw. As promised, I will send each of you some individual feedback and suggest some ideas for improving where necessary. The links below can also provide you with useful advice for the future.

As you begin to write more I am also available to offer writing support and advice. For this, you can email me on an ad hoc basis; my support will be tailored to the writing you are doing and what your particular interests and concerns are. Please email me on lwilding99@gmail.com
