Understanding Tone – Online Synchronous Workshop

October 19 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EDT

This workshop is taught by Dr. Rachael Cayley.

For many graduate writers, finding an appropriate tone is a challenge. In this workshop, we will discuss how to evaluate and adjust the level of formality in your academic writing. Informality can come from a range of features in our writing: excessive generality, inaccurate verbs, imprecision, wordiness, and poor word choice. After looking at examples of how informality can weaken academic writing, we will introduce a collection of strategies that can help to combat these problems.

This is the first of 4 workshops in the Improving Your Graduate Writing workshop series. 

This workshop will be offered live online and will not be recorded. Please register to receive a link to join the workshop at the scheduled time. If you are not able to register online or if you are not a currently registered U of T graduate student, please contact Sarah at sgs.gcac@utoronto.ca and she will register you manually.
