As a scientific writing coach

I believe that…

Clear writing is essential for open science

Clear and accurate writing help other scientists easily understand what you did and and how you came to your conclusions. Clear writing is also easier to read, making your work accessible to a wide scientific audience.

Academic writing is a craft

Good writing takes practice – the more you write, the easier it gets. In addition, it’s rare to write a perfect text from scratch. Good writing often takes multiple iterations, where you gradually refine the text until it shines ✨
