Free Writing Workshops for Marxe Graduate students! –
Summer 2023 Date TBD!
The Schwartz Communication Institute and Marxe Graduate Advisement invite all students in the MPA, EMPA, MIA, and MSEd-HEA programs to attend our Editing Strategies for Clarity, Style, and Professionalism writing workshop series this summer. Participants will learn strategies for editing their writing at the sentence level for clarity, style, and professionalism.
“Controlling Sentence Boundaries,” taught by Eva Dunsky
Is this sentence too choppy? How do I identify and correct fragments and run-ons, and why do they matter? How can I use sentence length to achieve a compelling, readable style?
“Increasing Precision and Readability,” taught by Melina Moore
How do I choose specific words that ensure my meaning is understood? How do I convey complex ideas without being wordy? What is the active voice?
“Achieving Flow with Connectives,” taught by Eva Dunsky
How can I achieve a logical “flow” and help my reader understand the connections between my ideas? How can employing various types of transition phrases bring greater clarity to my writing?
“Introduction to Writing in the Marxe Graduate Programs,” taught by Dr. Debra Hilborn-Davis
This workshop introduces the most common types of writing students produce in the MPA, EMPA, MIA, and MSEd-HEA programs, exploring differences between these various academic, professional, and public-facing writing genres (such as academic research papers, policy memos, and op-eds). Participants will also learn about the core writing skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout the curriculum and will examine what these skills look like in action.
Please register for one of the following dates:
Space is limited and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Please reach out to Melina Moore, the Assistant Director for Writing in Public and International Affairs (Melina.Moore@baruch.cuny.edu), with any questions.
