Academic writing coaching

Find your confidence

Set and achieve your goals

Get feedback on your writing

Do you feel unable to finish your academic journal article?

I get it. I know that many academics and medical researchers have been sitting on their draft journal article for weeks, months, or even years. They feel overwhelmed, bored or scared, and they just want it finished and submitted.

Some people find it almost impossible to prioritise the tasks in their ever-growing list of ‘things they are supposed to do each week’. As I’ve learned while giving writing workshops at universities around Australia, the result is that writing falls to the bottom of the to-do list and therefore never gets done.

For others, the issue is that they have moved onto a new research project and, over time, lost interest in writing up their previous project. However, while their interest has waned, they feel guilty, knowing that they really should be putting their work out into the world.

There are also many people working in clinical settings who have never received formal training in how to write an academic journal article, leaving them feeling unsure as to how to get started. 

I can help.

Imagine getting a proven writing system to follow, having your own personal coach helping you stick to your deadline and receiving feedback on your writing from a professional editor.

Wouldn’t that be a relief?

Introducing ‘Write It’, a program to help you finish your journal article

This month-long writing coaching program 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 future papers on your own.

In this program you will:

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

During the month, we will meet (online) four times, for 30 minutes each week, so that I can guide you through the process and keep you on track. At the end of the 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.

You will also get unlimited email support from me.

What do I get?

  • 8-part video series that takes you through the academic writing process
  • 5 x 30-minute coaching calls with me
  • A comprehensive edit of up to 10,000 words of your article
  • Encouragement and motivation to keep going and get it done
  • Unlimited email support during the month

How much does this academic writing coaching package cost?

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

How do I get started?

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.
