Friday, March 28, 2014
3-4:30 pm, 4550 Sangren Hall

When it comes to academic writing, some of the most constructive feedback comes from peers who live and breathe the same scholarly milieu. In this introductory workshop, you will learn why and how to give and receive meaningful peer feedback in a safe and supportive environment. (Please bring a short, 2-3 page section of your current draft.)
