2520D University Capitol Centre

Are you looking for methods to improve your success in writing, grant applications, and speaking endeavors? If so, join us this summer for a three-part series designed to provide you strategies to improve the clarity of your scholarly communications, both written and oral. These workshops are hosted by Paul Casella, writer, teacher, editor, producer, and graduate of Dartmouth and the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

A clear and reasoned presentation of ideas is critical to the success of a scientific manuscript. This seminar examines the structures and positions of emphasis in the sentence, paragraph, and sections of the formal study to help authors authorize their claims. Includes a test of reasoning that authors can apply to the articles they read and the papers they write.

This session will also address how authors can use a systematic approach to the writing process to improve the content and presentation of their ideas in a manuscript for submission. Includes suggestions about how to address the needs of the reviewers, editors and readers of a journal to improve your chances of publication.
