Why should I go?
Academic essays usually follow an established organisational structure that helps the writer to express their ideas in a clear way and the reader to follow the thread of their argument. Essay structure is guided by its content and argument so every essay will pose unique structural challenges. Having a clearer understanding of the most effective ways to structure your writing can help you to plan and organise the content of your essays and make sure you get your ideas across.
What will I learn?
This workshop will set out the established conventions of essay structure and consider the ways in which they may be adapted to different types of written assignment. It will look at assessment criteria and the ways in which essays can be structured to most effectively address the most important requirements. The workshop will discuss approaches to creating an essay map as a planning tool to support you in organising your written work.
- Attendance at the Academic Writing Overview session is NOT a requirement for this workshop.
