Writing skills: Structure - paragraphs and signposting language

When:
Venue: Online

This workshop can help you structure your writing and the flow of your argument by focusing on paragraph structure, transition statements and signposting language to link together your ideas.

Good academic writing leads the reader through your argument; this workshop will help make your writing flow, by focusing on paragraph structure, cohesion and signposting language. We will also address other ways of joining paragraphs and connecting ideas.
