  • Online delivery
  • eClass

This course builds on gram­mar and writ­ing skills by focus­ing on clar­i­ty, cor­rect­ness, and the devel­op­ment of a com­pelling writ­ing voice. Cor­rect­ing for style, con­tent, and for­mat are inte­grat­ed into for­mal stud­ies in gram­mar. By focus­ing on these essen­tial ele­ments of writ­ing, this course aims to pre­pare (or refresh) writ­ers for the process from first draft to final prod­uct. In-class exer­cis­es will be used to take com­plex, sophis­ti­cat­ed sen­tences and para­graphs and look at the under­pin­ning log­ic of what the writer is try­ing to say.
