Writing is the accretion of words into designs of meaning that grow evermore complex: Writers mine, smelt, and mill words; they solder them into phrases; they weld those into clauses; and they forge these into sentences, which are collected into paragraphs that, through recursive revision, are gilt, filigreed, and burnished into brilliance. In this two-hour workshop, the rhetorical mechanics at work of good academic style will be reviewed, good models will be studied, and exercises of our own will be practiced.
Target group: all LMU students
