March Events at The Writing Center

The Writing Center will be hosting two remote workshops this month:

Writing a Conference Abstract
March 22, 7:30-9:00 PM, register here.
Do you see a conference in your future? Here we will review the best practices of responding to
a CFP. We’ll look at graduate school conference CFPs, as well as regional and national conference CFPs—each has its own peculiarities. We’ll provide examples of successful critical and pedagogical abstracts. We’ll also take a look at a few abstracts that failed to effectively navigate the sometimes-idiosyncratic language of a CFP and discuss why we think they failed to qualify for their panel.
Structuring the Seminar Paper
March 30, 4:00-5:30 PM, register here.
Writing a long seminar paper can be challenging, especially when it comes to organizing all the
reading and thinking one has done into a coherent progression of paragraphs and sections. This webinar introduces participants to some of the fundamental principles that help guide decisions about structuring a longer academic essay.
