Academic writing coaching (30-day challenge)

Find your confidence

Set and achieve your goals

Get feedback on your writing

When I give writing workshops at universities, I hear academic staff and students voice the same concerns about academic writing:

  • They struggle to get started with their journal article.
  • They spend too many months (or years!) writing their manuscripts.
  • They are not confident in their academic writing skills.
  • They want feedback on their draft from a language expert (such as an academic editor).

What is the 30-day academic writing challenge?

    In response to these concerns, I created this 30-day writing coaching program. It is perfect if you are writing a journal article (up to 10,000 words) and want support to get it done ASAP while learning the skills needed to write the next paper on your own.

    In this program you will:

    • create a timetable to get the writing done
    • finalise which data you will include in your manuscript
    • make a detailed document plan
    • write a draft journal article.

    During the 30 days, we will meet (online) four times, for 30 minutes each week, so that I can guide you through the process. At the end of fourth week, you will submit your draft to me for a full edit. We will then have one final session where I return the edited document and give you feedback on your writing.

    During the month you will get unlimited email support from me.

    How much does this academic writing coaching package cost?

    The price for this program is A$1000 (+GST for Australian residents).

    How do I book in for academic writing coaching?

    If this programs sounds like just what you need, please get in touch to book a 15-minute call so that we can see if we’re a good fit. We can also use this time to identify a project that can be completed in the 30-day period. 

    If we both agree to proceed, I will send you a contract and the payment link.

    A 50% deposit must be made upon booking the first session and the remaining 50% is due 14 days later.

    I would recommend Malini wholeheartedly to anyone feeling stuck or despondent about their writing. She was able to quickly learn enough about an obscure topic to provide meaningful suggestions and was able to motivate me to progress to a successful outcome.

    As an native English speaker, I felt the ability to write should have come naturally. It can also be hard to have people read your work and provide critical feedback without taking it as a personal attack.

    Through working with Malini, I could get good critical feedback in a positive manner. I felt comfortable asking basic questions, such as how to use tenses or punctuation in a certain sentence, while also developing the broader story of my manuscript through improved planning strategies.
