Words of Wisdom

Normally, in anything I do, I'm fairly miserable. I do it, and I get grumpy because there is a huge, vast gulf, this aching disparity, between the platonic ideal of the project that was living in my head, and the small, sad, wizened, shaking, squeaking thing that I actually produce.

— Neil Gaiman

Tackling collaborative writing projects can be among the most challenging of assignments for both students and their instructors. This workshop presents students with strategies for successfully preparing, developing, and completing writing with a group. It offers strategies such as a timeline, member roles, and a writing process.

If your students sit in their groups for the presentation, our presenters can give them time to assign roles, to make plans, and to otherwise prepare for their project during the workshop.
