Mastering the craft of writing is a core aspect of developing as doctoral students. This workshop provides a comprehensive view (and review) of helpful norms, rules and skills to help doctoral students improve their writing while gaining confidence in their capacity to exercise a foundation skill. As ‘expert writers,’ participants will be encouraged not just to write but also to align with readers’ expectations, and to avoid pretentious prose. Selected issues of grammar, vocabulary, and text structure are discussed in service of these topics.
• Identify and fix problems in your own long-form texts with respect to paragraph writing, coherence and unity;
• Make your writing more impactful and valuable;
• Address problems relating to grammar and (academic) vocabulary;
• Effectively proofread your own texts and incorporate feedback from your peers, teacher and doctoral advisor into your own text.
