Writing skills: Drafting, editing and proofreading your assignment

Venue: Online

Writing is a craft - even when we write non-fiction such as essays and assignments, it is creative and expressive, challenging and rewarding. How do we get our ideas onto the page? This workshop presents ways for you to develop as a thinker-writer, including strategies for drafting and redrafting, editing for content, structure and cohesion, and offers tips for proofreading your final document.

This online workshop will take place on a 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.
