How do we write books and essays that make our ideas come alive and reach a wider readership? Writing Matters, a year-long workshop of eight sessions, will help graduate students and faculty develop a writing style that reaches beyond jargon and wooden prose.
This roundtable, the series’ launch event, brings together a trade editor, a non-fiction writer, journalists, and scholars who have written for academic and non-academic readers. Among other topics, they will discuss voice, style, structure, reading experiences, and the interplay between form, narrative, and presentation of information.
