How to Make Revision Count: Revising Practices for Graduate Students
Friday, October 20, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EDT
This workshop will introduce new graduate students to revising practices to help them thrive in their academic writing.
The most critical phase in the writing process is also the most mysterious and untaught. Revision is especially challenging for first-year graduate writers learning to write extended arguments for academic purposes. What do academic writers do when they revise? How does an early draft become a polished, publishable article? This Rackham/Sweetland workshop will demystify the role of revision in academic writing – to advance and refine our good ideas! – and provide strategies to help you build quality revision into your writing practice. You will expand your revising practices and elevate your writing game.
