Understanding Tone

November 6, 2019 @ 4:10 pm 5:40 pm EST

Workshop 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.
