We hope you are enjoying Section 3 which features the case involving Khadija Ismayilova, an investigative journalist reporting on the Azerbaijan oil industry.

This week, we received the news on the death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, an investigative journalist from Malta. A harsh critic of the government, she was killed by a car bomb near her home. She wrote about her government's ties to Azerbaijan, and used the release of the Panama Papers to connect her government's leaders to bank accounts in Panama. The censoring of journalists and the Panama Papers are covered in the remaining two weeks. 

Next Wednesday, we will release section 4, "Press Freedom, Censorship, and Surveillance." In the meantime we hope you will continue to work through content and quizzes of the first three weeks of the course and that you will join or start the conversation on the discussion forum.

Hello, everyone

As it's quite common for learners in WRITE101x to enrol multiple times, we apologise if you receive this email more than once, but we wanted to keep you informed of an opportunity to join us again.

Did you start the course and maybe couldn't find the time to complete it? Would you like to enrol again and share in your love of grammar? On 9 October, we will launch the seventh run of our course and would love you to be a part of our community of learners.

WRITE101x will once again aim to introduce you to key concepts and strategies related to grammar and style. Absorbing and applying these in your writing will help you to confidently respond to the unprecedented and accelerating demand for high levels of literacy that has arisen in the 21st century. 

As of today, the WRITE101x MOOC has attracted 498,020 students from 214 countries and territories, and we will no doubt surpass half a million learners with our seventh run! 

Register now and join Roslyn, Amber, Megan, and the team to help you learn more about Grammar, Syntax, and Style.

We would also encourage you to share this new run of our course with your friends and let us know if you plan to join us via the UQx Facebook or Twitter pages. 

We look forward to seeing you again in WRITE101x!

The WRITE101x team
