Summer Writing Workshop

August 14-15, 2018

Writing at a university level demands knowledge of academic requirements and expectations. The Summer Writing Workshop provides the opportunity to develop this knowledge.

The program focuses on aspects of university-level writing tailored for Arts, Science, and Business. Attend a lecture, learn about note-taking and lecture listening skills, and learn skills to write at a university level. Meet profs and ask them questions. Make new friends before you attend SMU.
