ESL Workshop- Academic Writing with Clarity

Clear writers connect one sentence to another.   

When we fail to manage the flow of information from one sentence to another, our readers are likely to become confused. In this workshop, we discuss ways we can purposely connect the flow of ideas from sentence to sentence by managing how the last few words of one sentence end and the next few words of the following sentence begin.

Writing with Clarity

Writing clearly in English is a challenge for native and non-native writers alike. What is it in a sentence that makes readers judge it as complex and unclear or as direct and easily understood? What general principles can we follow that will enable us to revise a sentence so that readers will judge it as clear and concise? These are the questions we will explore throughout these workshops.

These ESL writing workshops are designed to unravel the complexities of crafting clear and concise English sentences, a challenge faced by both native and non-native writers. Through interactive sessions, we delve into the intricacies of sentence structure, uncovering what makes writing seem complex or straightforward to readers. Participants will learn and apply general principles of clarity and conciseness, empowering them to revise and enhance their writing for improved readability and impact. Join us to explore these fundamental questions and elevate your writing skills.
