Four workshops at Augusta Campus to do the “Write” thing

Tutors of the Brenau Writing Centers are offering four special events, all dealing with topics related to writing. The first one will be on Monday, March 12 and Tuesday, March 13. After these sessions, which are of an introductory nature, two concurrent sessions on March 14 deal with the serious issue of plagiarism. The Wednesday, March 28 workshop is titled “Think before you Write”, covering the elements and flow of the writing process. Finally, a Saturday session on April 21 puts the capstone on the series with a seminar on “Polishing your Portfolio: Organizing and Revising Your Experiential Reflections.”
