Styling Your Academic Writing (4-session series)

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Virtual Event

This four-session series will equip you with the tools to take your academic writing style to the next level. You will learn how to clarify your meaning in complex sentences (Part 1), how to cut down your word count so that every word matters (Part 2), how to enhance the flow and coherence of your sentences and paragraphs (Part 3), and how to add "good words" to increase clarity and thick description (Part 4). This interactive workshop series will offer diverse and creative methods for styling writing. We will engage with examples from academic, technical, and creative writing to get us thinking about the context of "good style.”

This series is tailored to suit the needs of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars across disciplines as well as researchers and other scholars. We encourage you to attend all sessions of the series, but you are also welcome to sign up for separate sessions.
