Arts Essay Writing Workshop 4: How to Write Paragraphs

This workshop follows on from session 3 to consider how the main points you have established can be expanded into paragraphs.

The paragraph is the unit of structure in British Academic Writing. Workshop 4 unveils the rules for structuring a paragraph itself. This is the internal structure of the paragraph, also known as 'cohesion' within the paragraph.

We learn about the 'topic sentence'; deductive, inductive and 'club-sandwich' paragraphs; signposting within the paragraph.

We look at ways of making the transition from one paragraph to the next through the use of linking devices. [You might also want to attend the School of Arts Language and Grammar Workshop: Signposting Language in Academic Expression; or a similar session.]

To book a place on this workshop see the current School of Arts timetable or the MyBirkbeck academic development workshops.
