Writing Doesn't Need to be Scary
We want to encourage more discussion about the writing process, and emphasize its importance without living in fear of the ugly sentences we all know we write. If you're interested in working on your writing with other people, join us for our Write Nights! Sessions begin at 5:30pm with a 30-40 minute workshop on a particular writing topic. Afterwards the Honors College Writing Preceptors will be on hand to help you develop and improve your work so bring your essays or other writing projects with you! And, of course, there will be food. Check the Wednesday Night Writes calendar below or at the Honors College front desk or for details on weekly topics.
April 5th: Quoting and Citing with Ron Haas
What counts as “common knowledge”? When should I use direct quotes and when should I paraphrase instead? How do I bring my sources into my essay without obscuring my own voice? Join us for a mini workshop and conversation on everything you need to know about quoting and citing.
