Feel like you need some assistance in your writing? Most of us, regardless of our degrees and status could benefit from advice from someone who has made it his career to guide people to the next level of their writing ability.
Attend an interactive writing workshop specifically geared to graduate students. This 90 minute session will contextualize the major influences on writing struggles for graduate-level papers, and then feature three elemental areas of sound scholarly writing at the graduate level: organi zation around a complex and worthwhile purpose, a framed paragraph structure that follows and explores the organizational purpose, and a reassessment of source relationships according to the organizational purpose.
The workshop will be conducted by Michael Meinhardt, English Instructor. Open to both Master’s and Doctoral students from all disciplines.
Register at email@example.com. Include your name, LUC student ID number, academic program and degree pursuing. (When registering, please indicate which workshop date you plan to attend.)
