Editing for Organization, Flow, and Precision

Room 855 Weiser Hall Map
Connecting ideas smoothly for readers is one of the primary challenges in editing one’s own writing. When sharing your writing, do you ever worry that your readers will see a list of sentences more than an elegant, logical flow of ideas? Do you receive feedback asking you to develop ideas further, or connect points together? Do you find yourself using the same logical connectors (e.g. however, similarly, as a result) over and over? In this workshop for graduate student writers, we will explore “information bridges” as a means to improve the organization, flow, and precision of documents you compose. We will work with examples from a range of academic disciplines, and provide tools to explore how information bridges tend to be constructed in your own corner of the academic writing world. Please bring something you've drafted, at any stage in your writing process, to try out editing strategies during the workshop.

Pizza will be provided.
