The Writing Process (FWIS students)
Wednesday, March, 27, 2019, 6:00-8:00 pm
Do you have writer’s block? Procrastinate working on writing assignments until the last minute? Feel like you could have done a better job on your writing task? Then this two-part workshop is for you. In it, we will approach writing as a process rather than a product and address how the different stages of writing can be made to work for you as a writer. From breaking down a writing task into its component parts, to drafting and revising, to knowing when to stop polishing something, this workshop will take a holistic approach to writing and provide tools that can be adapted to different rhetorical contexts. Limited to 15 FWIS participants.
Dates & times: Wednesdays, March 27 & April 3, 6-8 PMInstructor: Vasudha Bharadwaj

Do you have a creative project that you’re excited to work on this summer? Do you want to complete it before you return to campus in the fall?

This two-session workshop will help you to define your goals, set a schedule, prepare for setbacks, and turn your vision into something tangible.

Managing Writer’s Block - Graduate Students
Tuesday, September, 24, 2019, 1:00-2:30 pm
This workshop aims to undo the myth of “writer’s block.” We will start with a discussion of why that blinking cursor or that blank page can be the biggest obstacle to our progress. Then, through a series of activities, we will develop some strategies for overcoming “writer’s block” that can help students produce their best work without the constant stress of looming deadlines.Instructor: Brittany Henry
Writing an Abstract
Wednesday, September, 25, 2019, 5:00-6:30 pm
This workshop is designed for graduate students who want help with writing an abstract for conference presentations/papers as well as journal articles. We will look at samples of successful abstracts, discuss the anatomy of a scholarly abstract, and learn how to use specific and targeted language. Participants also will have the opportunity to write and get feedback on their own abstract. Limited to 12 participants.Instructor: Kyung-Hee Bae
