A 'one-stop-shop' for economics writers

25 March 2015

A new writing hub for economics students will help students get to grips with the finer points of translating complex data into flowing essays, says Professor Edwin Muchapondwa, director of the School of Economics.

The hub will enable students, tutors, lecturers, writing consultants and librarians to pool their expertise in order to provide training and advice about essay writing. Muchapondwa says undergraduate students, particularly first-years, could use the centre to get into good writing habits as soon as they arrived on campus.

One of the hub's writing coordinator Richard Bryce, who is also a final-year law student, drafted the proposal to reinvigorate the old writing hub on Upper Campus, which is on level 3 of the Leslie Social Sciences Building.
