Workshops

Do You Want to Drop an Individual Quiz Grade?

You must attend a Writing Room workshop (schedule below). Then, you must develop a memo to me in the following format:

  • one paragraph summary of what was discussed in the workshop
  • one paragraph discussion of how you will apply what you learned in the workshop to your written work

The memo must be error-free. I will stop reading and return the memo as soon as I encounter an error.
