July 6 – 17, 2020
9:00AM – 12:00PM at UCLA
Most college classes require a good deal of writing. The academic writing process invites us to join lively conversations about the issues we are studying; as academic writers, we build on what others have written in order to develop our own ideas and positions. In this workshop you’ll read engaging texts and write responses to them. You’ll learn how to organize, develop and refine your writing, and how to find your academic voice. We welcome students who are eager to dive into a rich college-like writing experience.
We are able to offer a limited number of needs-based scholarships.
