Two Workshops Starting this Week

17 Nov

Join the RISD Writing Center for two great workshops this week.

The first is open to any and every RISD student:

Writing for Crit
Critiques are an opportunity to share your work with an insightful audience and gain feedback for a project’s development. How can we get the most out of the experience? This workshop will invite us to experiment with prompted list-making, self-interviews, and “objective” formal analysis designed to help you articulate your intentions, observations, and questions before crit. We’ll also talk about using writing post-crit to reflect and self-direct.
Facilitated by Jen Liese, RISD Writing Center Director

This workshop is offered multiple times, so choose the day that best fits your schedule:
Tuesday, November 18
Wednesday, November 19
Thursday, December 4

On any day, this workshop will take place 4:00-5:30 PM in the RISD Writing Center, College Building 240. No need to RSVP — just arrive on time, please.
*Participants: please bring a piece you’ve made to engage with in this session.

The second is especially for Grad students:

Grad Written Thesis Workshop
The first in a series of five workshops designed to support your thesis-writing process, this workshop will provide a big-picture view of the opportunity of the graduate written thesis, including: a guided tour of exemplary theses; shared dialogue on thesis goals, planning, and resources; and experimental writing exercises to start or grow your writing process.
Led by Anne West, Grad Studies Senior Critic, and Jen Liese, RISD Writing Center Director
