Whether you are moving directly from your undergraduate degree or returning after some time away, the first term of graduate school will challenge you to expand skills critical to your success. Two of the most essential skills needed to thrive are reading and writing. This new, four-part Rackham/Sweetland workshop series will showcase reading and writing practices for new graduate students that will inform your approaches to reading and writing through the course of your graduate career.

How to Make Revision Count: Revising Practices for Graduate Students

This workshop will introduce new graduate students to revising practices to help them thrive in their academic writing.

The most critical phase in the writing process is also the most mysterious and untaught. Revision is especially challenging for first-year graduate writers learning to write extended arguments for academic purposes. What do academic writers do when they revise? How does an early draft become a polished, publishable article? This workshop will demystify the role of revision in academic writing – to advance and refine our good ideas! – and provide strategies to help you build quality revision into your writing practice. You will expand your revising practices and elevate your writing game.
