Instructor: Arduser                       M             4:40pm – 7:30pm

This course is an introduction to the field of professional writing as an academic discipline and as a profession.  We will also study its research methods to prepare for other courses in the program.  The course will include advice about planning your program of study, finding internships and jobs, giving a conference paper, writing for publication, and becoming a member of professional communities.  You will have the chance to ask the professional writing faculty and alumni about anything else concerning your graduate work and your future plans. This course is intended primarily for new graduate students in the PW MA program. (Day/time to be set later.)
