Graduate Writing Workshop: Revision Tools for Reorganizing Large Projects

Friday, October 9 at 1 pm on Zoom.

Are you working on a longer piece, such as a prospectus or a dissertation chapter? Do you know that your project needs to be reorganized? Are you unsure how to begin large-scale structural revisions? Then this workshop is for you!

Participants will become familiar with and begin to practice the concrete strategies of reverse outlining, notecarding, re-outlining, and cutting-and-pasting. This workshop also allows each participant the opportunity to step away from the screen and work with a hard copy of their project.

Materials: In order to best benefit from the workshop, it is recommended that each participant have the following available for use during the workshop:

  • A hard copy of the piece of writing to be reorganized/revised

  • Note cards (notebook paper or printer paper cut into notecard-sized rectangles will work, too)

  • Writing utensil

  • Highlighters

  • Scissors

  • Tape

To participate, please complete a registration form. A Zoom link will be provided following registration. Please email for additional information.
