Academic Writing Boot Camp
Academic writing is a challenging skill to acquire! Professors often talk about it, and classes require it, but there are few places to directly learn about what makes writing “sound academic.” There are many elements to consider: vocabulary, tone, content flow, advanced usages of grammar and punctuation, and much more.

In this boot camp, you will learn the foundations of academic writing through participating in four interactive workshops, exploring our list of curated online resources, and checking out our reading recommendations.
