Hi graduate students,
The RGASC is hosting two writing workshops next week. Register today!
Workshop One: Editing your work for science students (with a focus on sentences and paragraphs)
Date and Time: Wednesday November 7th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: NE 4107
Workshop Two: Editing your work for humanities and social sciences students (with a focus on sentences and paragraphs)
Date and Time: Thursday November 8th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: NE 4107
We all know how rare it is for good and clear writing to happen in first drafts. For most of us, most of the time, it’s the editing stage (or editing stages!) that turns a collection of good ideas into a good text. In this workshop, we’ll discuss and use best practices in editing, focusing especially on working on the sentence and paragraph level. In addition to working through issues of grammar and basic syntactical rules, we’ll work on deepening your understanding of how your choices of word order and structure affect your readers by analyzing and rewriting sample material. This workshop will help you write prose that is correct, that is clear, and that communicates what you want to communicate.
Halloween is upon us, and you know what that means…
The UTMAGS annual Halloween lunch is here! Come join us for a free taco lunch with lots of candy on Oct. 31 at 12 pm in the grad lounge. Costumes are not required, but you’re more than welcome to bring them!
The HCC and the RAWC are initiating a new program called Wellness Routes, see the attached flyer for details. If you love nature, you will love this!
