About the Workshop

Penn's English Language Programs is offering a workshop series on completing graduate writing tasks in English.  The series is recommended for international Masters, PhD, and Post-Doc students and will include five 2-hour workshops.

In these workshops, you will improve your:

  • Understanding of the writing conventions and stylistic features of academic American English and your field.
  • Word choice, clarity, accuracy, and flow of academic written language
  • Noticing and self-editing skills

As the series will build on skills, students should plan to attend all workshops in the series.
