The Writing Process (FWIS students)
Thursday, March, 28, 2019, 4:30-6:30 am
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
