Please RSVP for:
Writing Workshop I: Clarity & Focus in Academic Writing
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 from 12:00 – 1:30pm, Billings Room A109
In this workshop you’ll learn how to focus arguments without sacrificing complexity. The true origin of the problem lies not in the complexity of your data, but in the structure of your sentences. You will learn concrete techniques to build sentences and paragraphs that can adequately house your ideas and your data, without leaving your readers behind.
Writing Workshop II: Grant Proposals, Abstracts, and Introductions
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 from 12:00 – 1:30pm, Billings Room A109
How can you make sure readers understand how your work contributes to knowledge in your field? How can you do this without claiming too much about your work — or too little? In this session, you will practice writing techniques in grant proposals, abstracts, and introductions that make clear why your work is valuable — and that help you to focus the rest of an article or proposal on the most important aspects of your research.
