Are you interested in learning about how published research writing is structured in your discipline? In this workshop for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, we will unpack misconceptions about research writing and call attention to frequently used words, sentence structures, and rhetorical moves. You will analyze articles in your own field to understand the specific  features of your professional discourse community, which will help you better meet expectations for getting your own research published. Please have 1-2 research articles in your own field available. You may also want a draft of your own work, although this is not essential.

Note: This workshop does not emphasize grammar. If you would like to refresh your grammar skills, check out our Grammar workshops!
