The Craft of Revision – Prerecorded Workshop

December 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

This prerecorded workshop is taught by Dr. Rachael Cayley

Academic writing relies heavily on revision. Most of us are simply unable to create reader-friendly texts that offer highly sophisticated explanations of complex topics without subjecting our writing to extensive revision. Despite the centrality of revision to an effective academic writing practice, many graduate writers are uncertain how to manage the craft of revision. This workshop will begin by exploring the benefits of revision, before going on to classify different types of revision: revising structure, revising sentences, and revising linkages. We will end by discussing how these different types of revision can be combined into a systematic revision process.

This 25-minute workshop is prerecorded. The date and timing of this workshop is arbitrary to allow us to add this event to our calendar and registration system. Please ignore the timing as the workshop is currently available to view at any time.
