Join us for this hands-on workshop that sorts out common sentence level issues.
Is it that or which? Do I need a comma here? When can I use a semicolon? What’s a comma splice? A dangling what?
Clear up your writing by editing for sentence level issues. Workshop will cover a range of content including punctuation around a variety of conjunctions and transitions, complete sentences, use of common punctuation, relative clauses, and more. It can help bring clarity to a wide range of sentence level issues that aren't often particularly clear.
You can bring work to edit during the workshop.
You can submit questions, areas of concerns, and examples for inclusion in the workshop through the registration form.
This event is designed for UVA Engineering graduate students and postdocs, but faculty and staff are welcome to attend if space allows.
