July 12 // May the Source Be with You: Research, Reading and Writing
-with the Writer's Studio

  • How do we know what’s useful in a source and what’s not? How can we quickly determine what a writer is saying, and how can we make productive use of their ideas in our own projects? This workshop will introduce skills for reading sources effectively and comprehensively, as well as strategies for incorporating them into your writing to push your ideas further!
