The Quick Fix and the Long Arc: Improving Your Writing at L&C
Writing is a crucial academic skill, but it is also an essential life skill, central to a purposeful and reflective life. Surviving the next paper sometimes leads students to lose sight of longer-term goals, but setting those goals is essential to developing into a mature and confident writer. This workshop will offer concrete advice to improve your fall E&D papers, but will also help you start thinking about how to develop better writing habits, respond to feedback from professors whose expectations can differ, and track the growth of your writing across the longer arc of a Lewis & Clark education.
