The Spring 2019 Workshop Series will include:

BRAINSTORMING IS HALF THE BATTLE (March 26th, 3-4pm; and March 27th, 12-1pm)

This workshop is designed for students to learn how

brainstorming can help them write a good, interesting, and well-conceived

essay/project. In this session, students will learn what

brainstorming is, how it can benefit them, and what kind of

brainstorming methods exist that can support them on their

journey toward completing a compelling project.

ENTERING THE CONVERSATION (April 8th and 15th, 3-4pm)

Do you have trouble crafting an argument? Are thesis statements

your nemesis? Contrary to what your high school English teacher

said, thesis statements aren’t formulaic and aren’t always just one

sentence. In this workshop, we’ll help you develop a strong,

conceptual thesis statement that will enable you to enter a

scholarly conversation with confidence.

SO YOU'VE WRITTEN YOUR FIRST DRAFT… (March 20th and April 10th, 1-2pm)

Did you just receive feedback on a first draft and don't know what

to do next? Fret not! Come to our workshop on revision! In this

session, we’ll discuss how to understand and analyze constructive

feedback, how to address big ideas and tiny details, how to write

with clarity and concision, outlining tactics, proofreading, and

more!

WRITING PROFESSIONALLY (NOT PROFESSIONALISTICALLY) (March 20th and 27th, 3-4pm)

In this workshop, we will provide a practical guide to

eliminating poor writing habits. Writing in cliches, poor or

inappropriate word choice, informal voice, thesaurus abuse, and

poorly executed citations are the major themes we will cover.

We will give you a behind-the-scenes look into what unnerves

writing instructors!
