Dissertation Bootcamp 3: Sentence structure and punctuation (Thurs)

Venue: Online

Workshop 3 of the Dissertation Bootcamp series.

Even when we have relatively well-developed writing skills, there are still things we can do to improve the clarity and style of our writing. This workshop presents the fundamentals of sentence structure, including ways to improve sentences in terms of length, clarity, conciseness and variety. It will also cover correct punctuation usage, including how to use the most common punctuation marks correctly.

The slides and a recording of this workshop will be found in the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle Module, in the Writing Skills Resources section under 'Dissertations and research skills'. 

Please Note: these workshops are intended for enrolled Birkbeck students only. Student login details are required for online access.
