Strong Sentences and Strategies for Self-editing

When: 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Where: Library 151b

Less is more. This class will teach you how to write more concisely and avoid redundancy and wordiness, so that you can finish within your word limit and write with impact and purpose. We will also explore the concepts of sentence “weight,” plain language principles, and good sentence construction, and learn how to build pieces of writing that show connections between ideas clearly. In this workshop, you’ll also consider common errors made by both native and non-native English speakers, and begin to develop a self-editing checklist that you can use to improve your own writing. Bring a piece of your unpolished writing with you and get feedback on items to add to your list.
