“Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor: Workshop for Graduate Students on Revision”

In graduate school, you may not have the energy to take many classes outside of your discipline. You might feel like you don’t have time to wash your hair. You might think you don’t have a second to stop and focus on writing at the sentence level, so involved do you become in the process of trying to join the academic guild. But learning how to craft good sentences will put you ahead of the rest of the (exhausted, beleaguered, often pretentious) academic pack. In this workshop, graduate students are encouraged to bring papers they are working on to learn strategies to revise their own prose and make it sound like something that was written by a human for other humans.
