First-Year Seminar Workshops for Freshman


From Ford Fellow Piers Gelly ’13:

First college paper got you down? Worried about being swallowed whole by the workload? Never fear! The Writing Programs have you covered.

This Thursday and Friday, our wonderful group of First-Year Seminar tutors will hold workshops that are certain to enlighten and astound you.

On Thursday, September 19th, at noon in Wyllys 112, Taylor Steele and Rosy Capron will tell us How to read for a college course, sharing strategies for reading in various disciplines. You will leave with sample papers and several methods of turning your course readings into well-argued and thoughtful essays.

On Friday, September 20th, at noon in Wyllys 112, Zoe Broad and Ronnie Alvarado will teach us How to write a good sentence, discussing common errors as well as different writing styles. You will leave with sample papers and a good sense of how to make your writing clearer and thus stronger.

Each workshop will be about an hour long. Feel free to bring lunch! Although these workshops are intended for students in First-Year seminars, all are welcome to attend.

Stay tuned for more Writing Programs events, including a publishing workshop.
