Every good thesis must undergo a rigorous editing process. But what is a ‘rigorous editing process’, exactly? How do you decide what to leave in and what to trim? How can you transform a shapeless, overlong mess into a piece of lean, mean scholarship?

In this 3-hour workshop, Dr. Jay Daniel Thompson will share his tips on editing theses. Issues covered will include identifying and removing unnecessary sections; spotting and rectifying issues pertaining to spelling and grammar; ensuring that your overall argument is clear and easy to follow; and ensuring that you have referenced appropriately and consistently.

The workshop will be interactive. Participants will be given handouts and asked to edit a piece of writing assigned by the facilitator. Please bring your laptop.

Refreshments will be provided.
