A ten-day writing and editing intensive program led by published professors, the Private Writing Workshop accelerates exponentially the composition level of our students.
Our approach is founded on two essential truisms:
Strong ideas emerge from a close, methodical readings of texts.
Clarity and concision in prose are the product of patience and meticulous editing.
For three hours per day, the writing workshop walks students through the completion of a single assignment, often ten pages, beginning with lessons in annotation and concluding with high-level line editing techniques.
The workshop can be geared toward writing for the sciences or the humanities. The greater purpose of this workshop extends beyond academic excellence, however: It equips students with the necessary tools to read, think, and write with precision and confidence, life long skills in increasing demand.
