Monday 9:05 AM – 11:55 AM
This writing workshop is focused on conceptualizing, planning, drafting, formalizing, and submitting an article appropriate for publication in a scholarly venue. Wendy Belcher’s Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks, Joe Harris’s Rewriting: How To Do Things with Texts, and sample articles will guide our thinking, writing, and workshop process. Our schedule is divided into two main parts: a) understanding the rhetoric of critical writing and assessing potential venues where you might publish it, and b) drafting and workshopping sections of your article during the latter seven weeks of the course. At the end of the course, you will submit your completed article for fulfillment of the course and for potential publication in a scholarly venue appropriate to your project. Students in any track within English (as well as those beyond the department) are invited to join the workshop!
