Advanced Writing Course Description
This course is designed for students who have already taken an Accent writing course and who have a complete (or nearly complete) article that they plan to submit for publication or to use as part of a thesis (kappa). Building on the principles and strategies discussed in the first course, we will revise several paragraphs (maybe even pages if time allows) from each student‚s text. In addition to using some of the concepts discussed in the first course, we will discuss and practice more subtle strategies that deal with organization, sentence clarity, sentence transitions, paragraph cohesion, and paragraph transitions in light of your audience‚s needs and expectations. As this course is more hands-on than the first course, we will limit the number of students to six, providing plenty of time for each student to revise her work in class and to receive feedback from fellow students and the instructor.
What to bring:
The Accent Writing Notebook from the first course.
Your laptop.
A hardcopy of your text.
A digital copy of your text.
