This workshop is designed to provide assistance to students who are already engaged in large writing projects and research papers and who would like a structured meeting time in which to write and to discuss strategies for research, writing, and revision. Special attention will be paid to the writing process: conceptualization, organization, and pacing oneself through work blocks and writing anxieties. Brief reading and writing assignments will be given and, in addition to attending class meetings, participants will be expected to meet in tutorial with the instructor. Because this class supplements work already in progress, no formal instructor evaluations will be provided and the completion of this workshop will not count as course credit. This course is primarily targeted toward students who are working on large research projects for Division II and Division III. This is a co-curricular class.
