Writing Matters: Syntax, Style, & Sources

Summer 2017 quarter (Full Session)

Taught by

We will begin with sentences—how to write them clearly; how to shape them; how to make them flow, one into the next. As we develop a language about writing, students will learn how to edit and revise their own work and examples of professional writing.  We will become adept at library research, bibliography, and conventions for integrating sources into writing craft, across genres. Students will attend lectures and participate in workshops, presentations, tutorials, and individual projects (for the 8 credit option).  This is a community of inquiry where all writers at all levels will be challenged and welcome. Students signed up for 4 credits can attend class through the first session only, or are welcome to continue through the full session.
