Writing skills: Grammar 1: Sentence structure

Venue: Online

Even when we have relatively well-developed writing skills, there are still things we can do to improve the clarity and variety of our sentences. This workshop covers the fundamentals of sentence structure, including methods of improving sentences in terms of length, clarity, conciseness and variety.

This workshop is part a series of two focused on grammar - the second workshop focuses on punctuation usage.

This online workshop will take place on a Blackboard Collaborate link within the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle Module. It is intended for enrolled Birkbeck students only, and you will require your student login details to access the workshop.

All our workshops will be repeated numerous times throughout the academic year. The resources and a recording of this workshop will be available in the Writing Skills Resources section of the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle module (student login required).
