Styling Your Academic Writing Series:Part 4: “Use Good Words”

Event Description 

Just in time for Spring Cleaning, this five-part 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), how to add “good words” to increase clarity and thick description (Part 4), and how to infuse your writing with music, personality, and voice (Part 5). 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 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.
