Navigating the PhD: Writing Processes & Strategies for Academic Writing

Friday, July 20, 2018 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
MSU Writing Center; 300 Bessey Hall

In this 3-hour workshop, the focus will be on writing processes and practices. The PhD programs at MSU require written comprehensive exams, dissertation proposals, and dissertations. In the workshop, participants will explore and share their current writing practices and be given practical writing and revision strategies. The latter half of the workshop will focus on developing a plan for approaching comprehensive exams or the dissertation (depending on the student’s current needs). Such a plan will help students develop goals, ask questions, and address writing strengths and limitations to successfully complete their degrees. This workshop is better suited for students who are working on their dissertations or preparing for comprehensive exams.

Registration for this workshop is required. Registration will open on July 1st.

*A pizza lunch will be served before this workshop beginning at 12pm. If you have any dietary restrictions please let us know by responding to the confirmation email you receive.
