Styling Your Academic Writing Series, Part 1: Clear It Up

Event Description 

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.” In Part 1, you will learn how to clarify your meaning in complex sentences. We will identify the most common sources of ambiguity and readerly confusion, from vague pronouns to excessive nouns, and work on writing in the active voice, streamlining clauses, and trying out further strategies to sharpen your focus. This series is tailored to suit the needs of graduate and professional school students and postdoctoral scholars across disciplines and years of study. Sessions are held every Tuesday from March 26th until April 23 from 4:00-5:30 at the Poorvu Center in Room 121.
