RESEARCH COMMUNICATION. Staff at Sahlgrenska Academy now have the chance to win Magnus Linton’s new book Text och stil – konsten att berätta med vetenskap (‘Text an Style – about the art of telling with science’ – note the book is in Swedish). Akadmiliv has three copies to raffle. The book is described as both a serious and fun story about the changed possibilities of the written word. The book is primarily aimed at researchers and experts who are looking for new forms of effective storytelling, but are really for anyone who, in text, handles facts and qualified knowledge.
To have a chance to win a copy of the book, we want you to email three words or concepts that you think describe Sahlgrenska Academy to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Monday September 9. We make no assessment of the words, but raffle the three copies among those who contribute with words about our faculty. Akademiliv will give a unified presentation of all the words we receive.
About the book

Magnus Linton believes that everyone can conquer the skills a living language and effective storytelling. In this inspirational essay-writing handbook he shares tips, strategies and reflections on the craft of writing and what makes a text strong, vibrant, rhythmic and intellectual, based on his own long experience of working as a writer and editor.
