Writing Effectiveness Bootcamp


Course Description

Imagine if writing well were easier and more pleasurable. How much more fruitful and fun would your academic or professional life be if you could write more effectively? What if the mechanics of grammar, punctuation, and style always worked in your favour? Which aspects of your approach to writing are holding you back?

This course will help you improve the effectiveness of your writing. The two genres we will focus on are the essay and the memo. The backbone of the course will be a series of writing assignments—approximately one per class meeting—which we will read, critique, and rewrite in order to improve the mechanics, structure, and style of our own writing. We will also spend time developing executive strategies for planning our work, making the most of feedback, summarizing complex ideas, and citing the work of others.

Please note, that all courses have a maximum enrollment of 15 students.

Priority is given to students who pay upon registration.

For fully registered courses, a waiting list will be created. Should vacancies develop, those on the waiting list will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis.
